The Law Reporting Company of New York also publishes the various insurance enactments. Thus, in 1910, it published the “Insurance Enactments of 1909, including all the laws relating to Insurance enacted by the Legislatures of the several States in 1909, compiled from Official Copies of the Same.” The Education Department Bulletin of the New York State Library also contains, annually, a review of legislation, one section of which is devoted to the review of insurance legislation.
