The month of June is off to a very busy start as NAMIC members representing six states came to Washington, D.C., this week to participate in NAMIC’s Congressional Contact Program.
NAMIC member companies from North Dakota, South Dakota, Kansas, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Tennessee made the trip to our nation’s capital to meet with their federal legislators and discuss the issues facing the property/casualty insurance industry.
During their visits, NAMIC members met with many key lawmakers. South Dakota members met with Democratic Sen. Tim Johnson, the chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, and presented him with NAMIC’s Benjamin Franklin Public Policy Award for his efforts in support of our industry during the last Congress. Kansas members met with Ways & Means Committee member Republican Lynn Jenkins to present her with a Ben Franklin Award. NAMIC members from North Carolina met with Republican Rep. Howard Coble and presented him with a Benjamin Franklin Public Policy Award as well. Coble is a member of both the Judiciary and Transportation and Infrastructure Committees and is the only member of the North Carolina delegation to co-sponsor the Safe Building Code Incentive Act during the last Congress. NAMIC will continue to work with his office to garner his support for the current version of the bill.

Kentucky members met with the office of Senate Minority Leader Republican Mitch McConnell, where staff listened to NAMIC member concerns and seemed generally supportive of our tax reform priorities. McConnell’s staff also expressed that the momentum gained for TRIA reauthorization so far has been impressive.
June promises to continue being a busy month, with NAMIC members from Texas, Illinois, California, and Oklahoma set for Capitol Hill meetings.
If you are interested in participating in NAMIC’s Congressional Contact Program there is still time to plan a trip to Washington, D.C. This is your opportunity to influence Congress on legislation that directly impacts you, your business, and your policyholders.
