Statute § 38-13-80(A)
“Unless Director provides otherwise, NAIC AP&P Manual”
Due to existing statutory reference to the NAIC AP&P Manual, the Insurance Department believes that Codification will become effective on 1/1/2001. The Department is currently comparing existing accounting requirements to Codification, and expects to have the process completed by the summer. Based on the results of the review, legislation may be proposed during the 2001 legislative session.
