Rep. Greg Wren (AL), president of the National Conference of Insurance Legislators (NCOIL), is urging that a representative of state legislators be appointed to the Federal Advisory Committee on Insurance (FACI). The advisory committee was created to offer advice, recommendations, and information to the Federal Insurance Office (FIO).

Rep. Wren, speaking on behalf of NCOIL, asserted that, “We strongly believe that a state lawmaker, a proven national leader on insurance public policy, would provide diversity sought for FACI membership while showing lawmakers—at the state and federal level—that policymaker input is important to the FIO mission.” The NCOIL letter specifically requests FACI membership for the NCOIL President or his or her designee and was released in light of a new Federal Register notice seeking applicants for FACI membership. NCOIL is an organization of state legislators whose main area of public policy interest is insurance legislation and regulation.

What It Means to Agents: PIA strongly supports NCOIL’s request for appointment to the Federal Advisory Committee on Insurance.
