Kotouc Bill Passes House
Kotouc's insurrnnee bill, II. R. No.
273, which has aroused some opposi
tion among business and insurance
men, was passed by the house this
afternoon after a call of the house.
The final vote stood 52 to 40. The
bill requires that all insurance com
panies deposit with the state auditor
securities representing their guaran
tee funds. The companies which
hold real estate as representative of
their reserve funds are required to
create and give that into the con
trol of the auditor. Much of the
opposition to the bill on the floor
was because of the power of control
which it gives into the hands of
one state official.
