Senate passes 'good faith'
ST. PAUL - Minnesotans could sue insurance companies that don't pay claims under a bill senators preliminarily approved Tuesday.
The measure -- called the "good faith" bill by supporters because it requires insurance companies to act in good faith when dealing with claims - "makes that consumer whole, that they do get what they pay for," bill sponsor Sen. Tarryl Clark, DFL-St. Cloud, said.
Final Senate approval is expected today. The House is considering a similar bill.
