Brooks will be so happy that a) his State of birth has been mentioned as an insurance innovator and b) that he can use his smart phone as proof of insurance when he gets stopped hammering through Greenville in his econo class Hertz Rental..
The House passed the measure last April and the Senate gave final approval last week to the bill specifying insurers can provide coverage policies through a smartphone, which drivers can use as proof. Oyango Snell with the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America said the option means drivers don’t have to keep up with a paper card that must be replaced every six months. His bill also includes a privacy protection clause. An officer handed a smartphone for insurance purposes does not have permission to search the phone for any other information.
