Millburn Insurance Co. Feels That
Mutual Company Should be Able To Take Bigger Risks.
The following important resolution was adopted at the recent annual meeting of the Millburn Insurance Co., the only local insurance company in Lake county:
Whereas the laws of the State of Illinois limit the amount of insurance that can be written in one risk by farm Mutual Insurance Companies to four thousand five hundred dollars, and,
Whereas, this amount is now inadequate to give reasonable insurance to a very large number of farm buildings, also including other farm property that must now be included in one and the same risk.
Therefore be it Resolved, that the Millburn Mutual Insurance Co. assembled this day in their 52nd annual meeting request our members of this the 8th Senatorial District to use their influence and votes to have the Farm Mutual Insurance Laws so amended as to allow Farm Mutual companies to write insurance to the amount that may be written in one risk to six thousand dollars and be it further
Resolved that our secretary be instructed to mail a copy of these resolutions to each member of the general assembly from the 8th Senatorial district.
