Commissioner Downing

Announces New Bail Bond Rules

Submitted by
Offices of Troy Downing, Montana State Auditor


Helena, Mont.—The Commissioner of Securities and Insurance (CSI), Montana State Auditor Troy Downing, has announced agency rulemaking to strengthen consumer rights in the bail bond industry.

After a public hearing and initial comment period, CSI extended the public comment period to better understand how the proposed rules impact both

industry and consumers. Many of the public comments shaped the new rules.

“Following an extensive public comment period, our agency made changes to the proposed rules to better protect consumers and be less burdensome to

industry.” Commissioner Downing said.

In 2003, the Montana State Legislature granted CSI the authority to regulate Surety Bail Insurance Producers, also known as Bail Bondsmen. With no rules adopted to date, the new rules take effect on April 16, 2021. Agency rulemaking carries the force of law.

“The public comment period showed us that most bail bond insurance

producers already followed the rules being enacted as a matter of standard

business practices. But, these rules are necessary because some took advantage of the inadequate regulatory framework─hurting both consumers and the

industry.” Downing continues, “In many cases, individuals using the services of a bond producer are the most vulnerable. These rules are a step in the right direction to protect consumers from bad actors.”

A typical premium on a bond in Montana is ten percent. The percentage of

premium required for a bond is not regulated in statute and is only subject to

marketplace competition. The new rules will establish how Bail Bondsmen

maintain this premium.

When received as cash or check, the producer has five days to deposit the money in an FDIC insured bank account or to be placed by the bond insurer in trust. When personal property, such as a vehicle, is received as collateral for the premium, the bond insurer must keep records of the transfer. These records are subject to CSI inspection upon request.

Downing says, “Inadequate record keeping leaves consumers at risk of losing their collateral.”

Under the new rules, Bail Bondsmen must provide a copy of the bond

agreement to the individual when released from jail awaiting trial.
