Brewer axes bill allowing insurers to drop drivers

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has vetoed a bill that would have allowed insurance companies to drop drivers from their coverage if their car was driven mostly out of the state.

The bill would have affected college students and snow birds who are insured in Arizona but who drive their cars out of the state for long periods of time.

House Bill 2327 was passed as a last-minute amendment in the Senate and failed in the House but was brought back for reconsideration and passed.

Brewer says wording in the bill is too vague and could have unintended consequences.

Arizona law prohibits insurers from canceling a policy based on location of residence.
