SB 87-REINSURANCE; CREDITS 1:50:53 PM CHAIR COSTELLO announced the consideration of SENATE BILL NO. 87, "An Act relating to credit for reinsurance; and providing for an effective date." She advised that the purpose of the second hearing of SB 87 is to have Lori Wing-Heier, Director of the Division of Insurance, go over the questions members asked when she visited their offices after the first hearing and the answers she provided in writing. 1:51:52 PM LORI WING-HEIER, Director, Division of Insurance, Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development, Anchorage, Alaska, stated that the two questions that arose from meeting with committee members were: 1) Q. Does the Division of Insurance monitor both the original company that insures a home and the company that covers the reinsurance to be sure there are sufficient funds to cover the insured property? A. Yes, the division monitors both. 2. Q. Are there any organizations opposed to SB 87? A. No, the division is not aware of any opposition to SB 87. CHAIR COSTELLO asked her to give a brief recap of what the bill does and what other states are doing in this area. MS. WING-HEIER stated that all states eventually will adopt a bill similar to SB 87. She said the Federal Insurance Office, which came out of the Dodd-Frank Act, entered into an agreement with the European Union and the United Kingdom about solvency standards for insurance companies. Because the federal government is not the regulator of insurance, each state is required to adopt legislation similar to this bill. The timeframe for adopting the legislation is five years and will expire in September 2022. MS. WING-HEIER related that insurance companies typically buy reinsurance behind policies they sell consumers. This limits the primary insurer's loss in the event of a large claim. For example, for a $1 million home, the primary insurer may reinsure half that amount. As the regulator, the Division of Insurance will look to see that the insurance company is carrying the $1 million on their balance sheet and has adequate capital to cover the full $1 million. The insurance company is asking to reduce the credit by $500,000 if they buy reinsurance. The agreement authorizes that provided the US, the European Union, and the UK all have agreed to the same solvency metrics. 1:54:52 PM CHAIR COSTELLO opened public testimony on SB 87; finding none, she closed public testimony on SB 87 and solicited the will of the committee. 1:55:19 PM SENATOR HOLLAND moved to report SB 87, work order 32-GS1584\A, from committee with individual recommendations and attached fiscal note(s). 1:55:37 PM CHAIR COSTELLO found no objection and SB 87 passed from the Senate Labor and Commerce Standing Committee. 1:55:44 PM At ease SB 45-AGE FOR NICOTINE/E-CIG; TAX E-CIG. 1:59:17 PM CHAIR COSTELLO reconvened the meeting and announced the consideration of SENATE BILL NO. 45, "An Act raising the minimum age to purchase, sell, exchange, or possess tobacco, a product containing nicotine, or an electronic smoking product; relating to transporting tobacco, a product containing nicotine, or an electronic smoking product; relating to the taxation of electronic smoking products; and providing for an effective date." She said this is the third hearing in this committee, public testimony is closed, and there is a committee substitute (CS). 1:59:58 PM SENATOR HOLLAND moved to adopt the Committee Substitute (CS) for SB 45, work order 32-LS0311\W, as the working document. 2:00:32 PM CHAIR COSTELLO objected for an explanation of the changes. 2:00:48 PM MELODIE WILTERDINK, Staff, Senator Mia Costello, Alaska State Legislature, Juneau, Alaska explained the changes from version B to version W of SB 45, paraphrasing the following document: Sec. 10 AS 21.96, Page 5, Lines 29-31, Page 6, Lines 1-11 Is amended by adding a new subsection AS 21.96.055 to require manufacturers of electronic smoking products sold in Alaska to file a bond of $10,000,000 with the Division of Insurance on the condition that manufacturers must promise to pay monetary judgments related to product liability in the state. Persons having claims against an electronic smoking product manufacturer required to file a bond may bring suit on the bond for failure to pay a liability described in AS 21.96.055. Sec. 17 AS 43.50.320, Page 8, Lines 11-16 Is amended by adding a new subsection AS 43.50.320(i) to prohibit the distribution of flavored electronic smoking products and electronic smoking products designed or packaged so as not to be clearly recognizable as a tobacco product. Sec. 22 AS 43.50.350, Page 11, Lines 14-20 Is amended to insert an exception, described in Section 23, to the depositing of tax collected into the general fund, which may be used by the legislature to make appropriations for health care, health research, heal promotion, and health education. Sec. 23 AS 43.50.350, Page 11, Lines 21-25 Is amended to add a new subsection AS 43.50.350 to direct tax collected on electronic smoking products to be accounted for separately and may be appropriated by the legislature to provide for education, programs, and advertising related to the hazards of electronic smoking products. Sec. 26 AS 43.50.390, Page 12, Lines 14-23 Is amended to update the definition of electronic smoking product to clarify that an "electronic smoking device" includes all parts, excluding batteries and battery chargers when sold separately. Sec. 31 AS 45.50.471(b), Page 16, Lines 3-6 Is amended by adding a new paragraph to prohibit the marketing of electronic smoking devices to persons under 21 years of age. MS. WILTERRDINK advised that the title was updated to reflect the changes. 2:04:20 PM CHAIR COSTELLO removed her objection; finding no further objection, version W of SB 45 was adopted. She asked Ms. Wing-Heier to explain the bill section relating to posting a bond and the precedence in Alaska for these companies to carry a certain type of liability policy when doing business in the state. She also noted the conceptual amendment for the committee to consider. 2:05:08 PM LORI WING-HEIER, Director, Division of Insurance, Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development, Anchorage, Alaska, stated that SB 45 asks for a bond to guarantee that the manufacturer of e-cigarettes has the capital, character, and capacity to perform. For example, a bond protects the homeowner against liens on their house if their building contractor fails to pay bills associated with building that house. If the bills are unpaid, the homeowner would make a claim against the bond. By comparison, a liability policy insures against damages in the event of injury. In the instance of SB 45, she advised that if the committee is looking for damages caused to people over age 21 because of e- cigarettes, it would be asking for a general liability policy to cover injuries or diseases associated with the use of that product. She noted that the precedence for this was established several years ago when the legislature required Uber to file a certificate of insurance with the division showing liability coverage. She recalled it was a $10 million policy. SENATOR GRAY-JACKSON asked for the cost of a $10 million bond. MS. WING-HEIER offered to do some research and follow up with the information. SENATOR GRAY-JACKSON said it wasn't necessary. CHAIR COSTELLO summarized her understanding that the liability policy is backing the ability to do business in the state. Those businesses would file a commercial general liability policy with the division. She asked Ms. Wing-Heier to discuss the precedent set with Uber for this type of policy and how it would work. MS. WING-HEIER explained that if Uber is in an accident, the injured party could ask the division, as the certificate holder, who to contact to file a claim. Policies under SB 45 would be the same. The policyholders would update and file annually and the division would be able to tell consumers, in the event they wanted to file a claim against the manufacturer, who has the manufacturer's liability insurance in the state of Alaska. CHAIR COSTELLO asked the members if they were comfortable with a conceptual amendment in [Section 10] to replace the term "bond" with "commercial general liability policy" where it is appropriate. 2:09:40 PM SENATOR HOLLAND moved Conceptual Amendment 1 to replace the term "bond" with "commercial general liability policy" in Section [10]. CHAIR COSTELLO clarified that the amendment is in Section 10 of the bill and it amends Title 21. 2:10:14 PM CHAIR COSTELLO found no objection and Conceptual Amendment 1 was adopted. CHAIR COSTELLO noted who was available to answer questions. 2:10:54 PM SENATOR STEVENS, speaking as sponsor, expressed appreciation for the Committee Substitute and what it does to help children today who are jeopardized by nicotine addiction. CHAIR COSTELLO thanked the sponsor for allowing the committee to improve an already great bill. 2:11:51 PM SENATOR HOLLAND sympathized with the people who worry about the tax and those who use vaping instead of tobacco products. He said he carefully looked into changing the tax but could not find a reason to do so at this time. SENATOR GRAY-JACKSON stated that she has always supported age 21 the 75 percent tax on e-cigarettes. CHAIR COSTELLO stated that she believes it is important that some of the changes in the CS mimic the federal law. It reflects the spirit of what the federal government is doing in terms of marketing e-products to young people. She said it is also important that a provision in the bill calls for the tax to be calculated separately so a legislature in the future could use those funds to educate young people about the dangers of e- cigarettes. 2:14:58 PM SENATOR HOLLAND moved to report the committee substitute for SB 45, work order 32-LS0311\W as amended, from committee with individual recommendations and attached fiscal note(s). 2:15:17 PM CHAIR COSTELLO found no objection and CSSB 45(L&C), as amended, was reported from the Senate Labor and Commerce Standing Committee. SB 11-COMMUNITY PROPERTY TRUSTS 2:15:48 PM CHAIR COSTELLO announced the consideration of SENATE BILL NO. 11, "An Act relating to community property and to community property trusts; and providing for an effective date." 2:15:57 PM TOM BEGICH, Alaska State Legislature, Juneau, Alaska, Sponsor of SB 11, stated that he presented the bill last Friday and explained that it corrects an ambiguity in the Community and Property Trust Act of 1998 and achieves the intent that community property trusts include appreciation. CHAIR COSTELLO listed who was available to answer questions. 2:17:10 PM CHAIR COSTELLO opened public testimony on SB 11; finding none, she solicited the will of the committee. 2:17:32 PM SENATOR HOLLAND moved to report SB 11, work order 32-LS0132\I, from committee with individual recommendations and attached fiscal note(s). 2:17:51 PM CHAIR COSTELLO found no objection and SB 11 passed from the Senate Labor and Commerce Standing Committee. SENATOR BEGICH thanked the chair and the committee for its swift consideration of the bill. He characterized it as a small bill that will have important ramifications. 2:19:04 PM There being no further business to come before the committee, Senator Costello adjourned the Senate Labor and Commerce Standing Committee meeting at 2:19 p.m.
