WHAT IS A VENDING MACHINE

The Department may authorized an Arizona-licensed insurance producer to issue insurance policies using a mechanical vending machine if the producer provides required information to the Department. ARS § 20-293

WHO MUST BE LICENSED?

A licensed insurance producer must obtain authority from the Department of Insurance to offer insurance through a vending machine, and must display evidence of that authority, in a form prescribed by the Department, on or near each vending machine.  ARS § 20-293

ARS § 41-1030(G) requires most Arizona government agencies to prominently print the provisions of ARS § 41-1030(B), (D), (E) and (F) on all license applications.  The following is the language in ARS § 41-1030(B), (D), (E) and (F):

B.        An agency shall not base a licensing decision in whole or in part on a licensing requirement or condition that is not specifically authorized by statute, rule or state tribal gaming compact. A general grant of authority in statute does not constitute a basis for imposing a licensing requirement or condition unless a rule is made pursuant to that general grant of authority that specifically authorizes the requirement or condition.

D.        This section may be enforced in a private civil action and relief may be awarded against the state.  The court may award reasonable attorney fees, damages and all fees associated with the license application to a party that prevails in an action against the state for a violation of this section.

E.        A state employee may not intentionally or knowingly violate this section.  A violation of this section is cause for disciplinary action or dismissal pursuant to the agency’s adopted personnel policy.

F.         This section does not abrogate the immunity provided by section 12-820.01 or 12-820.02.
