Bills pass Insurance Committee

The state House Insurance Committee approved three bills, including one introduced by committee chairman Kevin Boyle that would require insurance companies and agents to develop cybersecurity policies and report cybersecurity events to the Insurance commissioner. Boyle said the bill ultimately aims to put policies in place that would make it very difficult for insurance consumers’ information to be breached or stolen, and make it easier to protect them if a breach occurs.

“It’s important we make sure that insurance consumers are protected from scams and from having their electronic personal information stolen,” Boyle said. “Having cybersecurity policies in place and preventing breaches before they occur is a step in the right direction to ensure this for consumers. I am very pleased to see this bill voted out of committee and hope to see it signed into law to protect Pennsylvania insurance consumers.”

House Bill 735 would establish the Flood Insurance Premium Assistance Task Force. Senate Bill 8, introduced by Senate Pro Tempore Kim Ward, a Republican, would require health insurance coverage of breast cancer genetic counseling and testing without cost-sharing. It also would eliminate cost-sharing for breast MRIs for women with increased breast cancer risk factors.

“As chairman of the House Insurance Committee, I’m proud to move S.B. 8 to the House floor,” Boyle said. “It’s vital to protect women’s health, especially when it pertains to breast cancer. The passage of this bill out of committee shows that when Democrats and Republicans come together, and put the people of Pennsylvania first, we can deliver necessary help to them on crucial issues like breast cancer.”

Each bill will move to the House chamber for a vote in the near future. ••

Safe LNG exporting

Pennsylvania’s bipartisan Liquid Natural Gas Task Force, chaired by Rep. Martina White, met to gather information on the best and safest way to increase the export of LNG.

“The state’s rich deposits of natural gas supported nearly 500,000 total jobs across our economy in 2019, generating $78.4 billion toward the state’s gross domestic product, including $40.5 billion added to total labor income,” White said. “It is critical that we keep this economic engine charging ahead as a benefit for our workforce, and for an environment that needs clean energy. Our challenge is to find a way to get the state’s natural gas to the ships in our port.”

Because there is an increasing demand from countries without natural gas reserves, the task force focused on how to safely export LNG from Pennsylvania’s ports. Among those testifying was former Democratic Ohio congressman Tim Ryan and representatives of the Pilots’ Association for the Bay and River Delaware, the Maritime Exchange for the Delaware River and Bay and the American Petroleum Institute. ••
