Chaney suggests home safety law
Question of the Day
PICAYUNE, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney says he’d like to see security system sales people subject to background checks.
The Picayune Item reports (http://bit.ly/1hJnxxh ) that Chaney told a local civic club this past week that the checks would prevent criminals from impersonating sales people and getting into people’s homes.
Chaney says the requirement, which needs legislative approval, would give some peace of mind to people who let strangers into their home with the ability to access the systems that are supposed to protect them.
Chaney says Louisiana has performed mandatory background checks for their security sales people for several years now.
Chaney, a Republican, has been insurance commissioner since 2008.
