Alabama legislators are reintroducing a bill that would extend the licensing period for the state’s insurance professionals.

The bill, currently unnumbered, would lengthen the renewal period for insurance producers, service representatives and adjusters from annually to every 2 years, according to the state Department of Insurance.

The bill, introduced by Rep. Warren Beck and Sen. Steve French, both Republicans, also would change the continuing education requirement for insurance licensees to 24 hours over 2 years, from 12 hours over 1 year.
