Two more states have responded to PIA's call-to-arms on behalf of U.S. Armed Forces personnel returning from active duty. New Mexico and Indiana have issued bulletins stating that returning members of the military should not be subject to "continuous coverage" underwriting standards.

On May 19, PIA launched a nationwide campaign calling on all state DOIs to make it clear that no insurance company should deny auto coverage to U.S. Armed Forces personnel, or raise their rates, because their coverage lapsed while they were on active duty overseas. In addition to New Mexico and Indiana, Florida, Washington, Missouri, Iowa, Colorado, Connecticut and North Dakota have issued advisory letters, statements or orders that all underwriting standards on continuous coverage should be waived for returning U.S. service personnel.
