On January 2, 2019, Maine State Senator Robert Foley (R-34) introduced Senate Paper No. 11, which sought to increase the Minimum Financial Responsibility (MFR) for property damage from $25,000 to $50,000. Since the passage of the Graves Law, which greatly limited vicarious liability lawsuits, TRALA has seen state lawmakers, trial lawyers, and some in the insurance industry attempt to increase the MFR limits in states.
