INTRODUCED

HB 1400 -- Transportation Volunteer Insurance

Sponsor:  Fitzwater

This bill establishes a special trust fund, the "Transportation
Volunteer Insurance Fund," to provide insurance coverage for
volunteers who transport the elderly and disabled.  "Volunteer
transportation service" is defined as any service in which the
volunteer uses his or her personal vehicle, or a vehicle owned
and licensed by certain nonprofit organizations, for the purpose
of providing transportation for disabled or elderly adults.
Qualifying nonprofit organizations include the area agencies on
aging, senior centers, churches, senior housing developments,
nursing homes, long-term care facilities, civic groups, health
clinics, and hospitals.  Nonprofit organizations sponsoring
volunteer transportation services and wishing to participate in
the insurance fund must complete and submit an application, with
appropriate application fee, to the 7-member board of trustees.
The board is comprised of the directors of the departments of
Social Services, Health, and Insurance, or their designees, and
4 citizens appointed by the Governor with the advice and consent
of the Senate.  Two of the 4 appointees must operate a volunteer
transportation service, and the 2 remaining members are to
represent the elderly and disabled at large.  The Department of
Social Services will provide staff resources for the
administration of the fund, unless another state agency is
specified by the board, and is to be compensated for all costs
incurred for staff support.  The board is to prescribe rules and
regulations for the fiduciary management of the fund, and may
reinsure all or a part of the fund's liability.
