Section 21 of chapter 255C of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2010 Official Edition, is hereby amended by inserting, after the word “mail”, in line 23, the following words:- any written notice of cancellation initated by the insurance company for any additional premium shall be sent to the finance company no later than twenty days prior to the effective day of cancellation;

              and is further amended by inserting, after the word “agreement”, in line 29, the following words:- to an agent of the insurer or premium finance agency;

              SECTION 2. Said section 21 of said chapter 255c is hereby further amended by deleting the last sentence.
