REFERENDUM PETITION TO OVERTURN AMENDMENTS TO "THE FAIR INSURANCE RESPONSIBILITY ACT." If signed by required number of electors and filed with Secretary of State within 90 days of enactment, this petition will prevent implementation of specified sections of Chapter 721, Statutes of 1999, unless approved by majority of voters. Chapter 721, previously approved by the Legislature and the Governor, limits rights of injured persons to sue another's insurer for damages for unfair handling of claims, exempts professional liability insurers from such suits, and requires state auditor to report on the "Fair Insurance Responsibility Act" (Chapter 720, Statutes of 1999).
