Man Blames Legislature for Money Loss
Just nine months after building his new home, Kris Lang lost everything in a house fire. Lang said he had full coverage through NEC Insurance Company based in Pacific Missouri.
"I reported that to my insurance man and he told me not to worry that he was well insured and there would be an adjuster, " Lang said.
However, Lang said that was the last conversation he ever had with NEC. Now, he said, the company won't return his phone calls and he has no idea where his money is.
Lang says lawmakers are partly to blame for his trouble, because last summer, the legislature passed and Governor Blunt signed, a law that makes some complaints against insurance companies secret.
"So I feel that Governor Blunt is a friend of the insurance company and not a friend of the citizen," said Lang.
With no home and no money, Lang is protesting outside the Truman Building, hoping someone will listen.
The NEC insurance company never returned phone calls from KOMU.
