AN ACT to amend the insurance law, in relation to  requiring  all  motor

  Section 1. This act shall be known and may be cited as the "automobile
insurance sunshine act of 2015".
  S  2.  Legislative  intent.  The legislature hereby finds and declares
that insurance companies issuing motor vehicle policies  in  this  state
owe  a  duty  to  the  consumers they insure and to those who may in the
future be insured by them, to fully disclose in a public and transparent
manner all elements relating to their financial condition and  solvency.
Automobile  use  and operation is a cornerstone of modern life; in fact,
auto insurance is the only coverage most New Yorkers are required by law
to purchase.  New York's consumers have a right to know the details  and
specifics of the factors and circumstances behind the financial solvency
of their insurer as well as the bases for the rates they are required to
pay to retain their legally mandated coverage. The determination of auto
insurance  premiums  in New York has, unfortunately, gone on too long in
obscurity, with those who bear the premium rates unable to learn reasons
why they are set where they are. As a matter of public trust, automobile
liability insurers should make public the  pertinent  facts  related  to
their  premium determinations and financial solvency. It is the sense of
