Turns out both these statements were a lie. The bill has still never received a vote in the Senate and it is becuase Mike Chaney and Tate Reeves will not help us get a vote.
They have sided with the big insurance companies.

 

Commissioner Mike Chaney  issued a statement on why he is supporting Homeowners Rights Legislation "Burden of Proof."

Commissioner Chaney stated: We believe that codifying the burden of proof as set forth in existing case law would protect consumers by moving cases through the system with much greater efficiency.  This could be particularly helpful where there is a large volume of cases after a catastrophic event, such as Katrina.
 
I presented these statements to Candidates Tate Reeves who are seeking the office of Lt. Governor. Reeves responded with the following statement:

Reeves:Treasurer Reeves believes protecting policyholders is a critical component of the Mississippi Insurance Department's mission, and the best way to ensure a living, working document through a bill of rights is accomplished through regulation, not legislation or litigation.

Mr. Reeves would not oppose legislation that codifies existing case law holding that an insurer has the burden of proving by the preponderance of the evidence that any exclusion in an "all perils" homeowners policy applies to the cause of action.
