SALT LAKE CITY — Utah could be the next state to allow motorists to provide proof of insurance electronically, instead of the traditional paper form stuffed in a car’s glove compartment.
The House this week approved HB 295, sponsored by Rep. Derek Brown, R-Cedar Heights, which would allow a stopped motorist to provide electronic proof of insurance using an electronic device. The measure now moves to the Senate. Sen. Todd Weiler, R-Woods Cross, is the Senate sponsor of the measure.
Idaho last year was the first state to adopt the policy, and six states have followed, Brown said.
