"Anti-steering" laws vs. auto insurer commercial speech

New from Washington Legal Foundation:

A number of U.S. states, either through laws or enforcement actions, frustrate auto insurers' ability to share truthful information with policyholders about repair shop options. Orrin L. Harrison III and J. Carl Cecere Jr. of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP explain the constitutional flaws inherent in such state policies in a new WLF Legal Backgrounder, "Anti-Steering" Insurance Laws: State Censorship Of Consumer Information Treads On First Amendment Rights.

Among their other ill effects, the laws can make it harder for policyholders to steer clear of overpriced or otherwise dubious repair shops. Among those pushing for tougher enforcement of the laws: Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal.
