Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.)Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.), a member of the House Financial Services Committee, will address PIA members during the Federal Legislative Summit (FLS). Rep. Speier will speak on Wednesday April 1, during the FLS legislative briefing.

"We are pleased to welcome Rep. Speier and appreciate her desire to meet with the members of PIA who will be participating in the Federal Legislative Summit," said PIA National Executive Vice President & CEO Leonard C. Brevik. "Her experience with our issues in Congress and in her previous long tenure as Chair of the California Senate Banking, Finance & Insurance Committee will benefit all PIA members."

Rep. Speier - a supporter of state regulation of insurance - will speak on the downsides of federal regulation of the insurance industry. PIA's 2008 campaign against the Insurance Information Act (H.R. 5840) was successful when action was halted on H.R. 5840, after Rep. Speier objected to the legislation proceeding. Congress has not taken it up again.
