About 20 percent of state insurance legislation to date in 2004 dealt with the regulation of automobile insurance, according to a new survey by the National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies (NAMIC).  Auto insurance measures included legislation on drunk-driving, seat-belt use and child-safety standards, and proof-of-insurance requirements.  Nearly 15 percent of the new laws deal with workers compensation benefits or claims eligibility, the role of the workers compensation regulator, or comprehensive revisions of workers compensation laws.  Other common measures dealt with tort reform, financial regulations, licensing and regulator authority.  Some states passed measures dealing with the use of loss data in underwriting, premium taxes, building codes, rate regulation and telephone sales.
