Law Enforcement Vehicles (Watch) – PASSED 

CS/SB 266 (Diaz) requires an agency that employs law enforcement officers and allows those officers to take home an agency-owned vehicle to maintain motor vehicle insurance, including bodily injury, death and property damage liability coverage that covers the time an officer spends while going to or coming from work or any other agency assignment in an official law enforcement vehicle. The bill provides specific instances when the motor vehicle insurance would not have to provide coverage. CS/SB 266 passed the Senate (37-0) and the House (117-0) and is awaiting action by the Governor. (Hughes)
