Status Report On Arson-Reporting Immunity Legislation. Insurance Committee For Arson Control.

Abstract: Immunity legislation was established to allow insurance companies to share information with law enforcement agencies without the threat of a civil suit. The purpose of the law is to keep information flowing between insurers and law enforcement agencies to help fight arson. The immunity laws permit insurance companies to report fires of a suspicious nature to the authorities.

The laws vary from state to state. Some states allow insurance companies access to all information. Other states limit the information insurance companies may request. These states grant law enforcement agencies permission to deny specific types of materials viewed as sensitive. For example, Minnesota does not allow insurance companies to receive non-conviction criminal histories. Other states deny insurance companies access to information related to other on-going investigations. This article lists every state and their restrictions regarding immunity legislation.
