Legislators of the National Conference of Insurance Legislators (NCOIL) were encouraged when S. 1955, the Health Insurance Marketplace Modernization and Affordability Act, was defeated in the Senate.

NCOIL Vice President Senator Alan Sanborn (MI) said, "We are heartened to see that the Senate defeated S. 1955. While the Enzi legislation was well intentioned, it would have preempted carefully crafted state laws that provide critical consumer protections and mandated benefits. NCOIL does not believe that S. 1955 would have effectively addressed the growing issue of our nation's uninsured."

NCOIL is an organization of state legislators interested in insurance legislation and regulation. Many legislators active in NCOIL either chair or are members of the committees responsible for insurance regulation in their respective state houses across the country.
