National Conference of Insurance Legislators officers have sent a letter urging key congressional committee leaders to protect state efforts to regulate insurance markets.
The officers of NCOIL, Troy, N.Y., have mailed copies of the letter to Sens. Max Baucus, D-Mont., and Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., and to Reps. George Miller, D-Calif., Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., and Henry Waxman, D-Calif.
Congress should acknowledge “the strength and accomplishments of the states and . . . preserve the protections that they have put in place,” the NCOIL officers write in the letter. “States are best-suited to respond to the specific needs of their individual markets.”
