The Department of Insurance and Financial Services will hold a public hearing to receive public  
comments on proposed changes to the Surplus Lines Insurance Fees rule set.  
Chapter 19 of the Insurance Code, MCL 500.1901, et seq., known as the "surplus lines insurance act,"  
regulates surplus lines insurers in the state of Michigan. Chapter 19 contains certain conditions and  
requirements for licensees to charge policy fees to insureds. See MCL 500.1915. MCL 500.1915 was  
amended by 2020 PA 62 to establish new fee schedule standards for permissible fees. The proposed  
rule will provide consistency with Chapter 19 by striking obsolete language from the existing rule, and it  
defines the expenses that are "unique to surplus lines."  
By authority conferred on the Director of the Department of Insurance and Financial Services by  
Sections 210 and 1955 of the Insurance Code of 1956, 1956 PA 218, MCL 500.210 and 500.1955, and  
Executive Reorganization Order No. 2013-1, MCL 550.991.  
The proposed rules will take effect immediately after filing with the Secretary of State. The proposed  
issue of the Michigan Register. Copies of these proposed rules may also be obtained by mail or  
electronic mail at the following email address: Michele Estrada,  
Comments on these proposed rules may be made at the hearing, by mail, or by electronic mail at the
