AN  ACT  to  amend the vehicle and traffic law and the insurance law, in
  relation to increasing the minimum insurance coverage requirements for
  automobiles registered and/or operated within the state of New York

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Paragraph (a) of subdivision 4 and subdivision 7 of section
311  of  the  vehicle and traffic law, paragraph (a) of subdivision 4 as
amended by chapter 305 of the laws of 1995 and subdivision 7 as  amended
by chapter 805 of the laws of 1984, are amended to read as follows:
  (a) Affording coverage as defined in the minimum provisions prescribed
in  a  regulation  which  shall  be promulgated by the superintendent at
least ninety days prior to effective date of this act.  The  superinten-
dent  before  promulgating  such  regulations  or any amendment thereof,
shall consult with all insurers licensed to write  automobile  liability
insurance in this state and shall not prescribe minimum provisions which
fail  to  reflect the provisions of automobile liability insurance poli-
cies, other than motor vehicle liability policies as defined in  section
three  hundred  forty-five  of this chapter, issued within this state at
the date of such regulation or amendment thereof.  Nothing contained  in
such  regulation  or  in  this  article  shall prohibit any insurer from
affording coverage under an owner's policy of liability  insurance  more
liberal  than  that  required  by  said minimum provisions.   Every such
owner's policy of liability insurance shall provide insurance subject to
said regulation against loss from  the  liability  imposed  by  law  for
damages,  including  damages  for  care and loss of services, because of
bodily injury to or death of any person and injury to or destruction  of
property arising out of the ownership, maintenance, use, or operation of
a specific motor vehicle or motor vehicles within the state of New York,

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
