Arizona motorists who purchase just the bare minimum liability insurance could be forced to spend more despite the objections of a Gilbert legislator.

A measure approved last week by the Senate Committee on Transportation and Public Safety would mandate that vehicle owners purchase policies which provide for at least $25,000 worth of coverage for injuries caused to any one person. The current minimum is just $15,000, a figure that was put in place in 1972.

SB 1087 boosts total coverage for all injuries in any one mishap from $30,000 to $50,000. And the property coverage – essentially damage to someone else’s vehicle – would go from $10,000 to $15,000.

How much more that would cost, however, remains a bit unclear.

Lobbyist Rob Dalager, who represents groups backing the higher limits, told lawmakers he has heard figures of anywhere from $3 to $8 a month.
