Bill Number: 
HB 182
Bill Purpose: 
Allows voluntary payment at interest rates according to 32.065
Date of Vote:

My Vote: 
Yes
Explanation: 

HB 182, introduced by Representative Noel Shull (Republican - District 16), is a simple bill that allows voluntary payments made by insurance companies to use the interest rates laid out in existing law (section 32.065).  While I admit I don't fully understand why this is needed, I could not find anything in the language that was objectionable, and no opposition was voiced on the floor by other members.  As a result, I voted yes.  It passed easily.
