Colorado Insurance Commissioner Marcy Morrison resigned on November 30, about six weeks before Gov.-elect John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, will take office. Morrison, a Republican, served four years under Democratic Gov. Bill Ritter. "She served with distinction, and her positive imprint will be felt for years to come," Ritter said in a statement.

Morrison was the only Commissioner to speak out against an NAIC resolution supporting the role of agents in health insurance. During an August 2010 NAIC meeting, she said that many people will be affected by the new healthcare law and therefore she didn't think it was appropriate to single out agents for support.
