NY Barring Insurers From Using Job, Schooling to Set Rates

ALBANY (AP) -

New York state is moving to restrict the ability of auto insurers to use a customer’s job or education to set premiums.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the proposed regulation Tuesday, saying the practice has nothing to do with a person’s driving ability. The regulation must be published in the state register and opened for public comment before taking effect this summer.
