BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: Section 1. Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 72A.20, subdivision 20, is amended to read: Subd. 20. [CONTACT WITH DEPARTMENTGOVERNMENT.] An insurance company may not terminate or otherwise penalize an insurance agent solely because the agent contacted any government department or agency regarding a problem that the agent or an insured may be having with an insurance company. For purposes of this section, "government department or agency" includes the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government as stated in article III of the Constitution. Sec. 2. [EFFECTIVE DATE.] Section 1 is a clarification of the legislature's intent in originally enacting Minnesota Statutes, section 72A.20, subdivision 20, and section 1 is therefore effective retroactively to May 18, 1989, which was the effective date of that statute as originally enacted.
