Short description: 
INS SETTLE NOTIFY INSURED                                                  

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois Insurance  Code.   Provides  that  before  an      
   insurance  company  settles a claim for an amount in excess of $10,000      
   pursuant to a  liability  insurance  policy  or  workers  compensation      
   insurance  policy,  it  must give the insured notice of the settlement      
   and  an  opportunity  to  comment  upon  the  settlement.    Effective      
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Removes requirement that an insured be given  an  opportunity  to      
   comment  on  and respond to a proposed settlement.  Requires only that      
   notice of the settlement be given.                                          
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 3.                                                 
        Requires notice of a settlement to be given to the insured within      
   30  days  after  the  claim is settled rather than before the claim is      
   settled.  Provides that repeated failure to  provide  the  information      
   constitutes an unfair trade practice.                                       
          STATE MANDATES NOTE, H-AM 1, 3                                       
          (Department of Commerce and Community Affairs)                       
          HB 3106 (H-am 1 and 3) does not create a State mandate.              
          HOME RULE NOTE, H-AM 1, 3                                            
          (Department of Commerce and Community Affairs)                       
          HB-3106 (H-am 1 and 3) does note relate to home rule powers and      
          functions, and therefore does not pre-empt home rule authority.      
          FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1,3 (Dept. of Insurance)                           
          HB 3106, with H-am 1 and 3, will have minimal fiscal impact on       
          the Department.
