Consumer protection and regulatory developments discussed

Rep. Brandon Vick, R-Felida, attended the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) Summer National Meeting in Chicago August 15-18. He joined more than 32 legislators and gubernatorial representatives from 23 states and territories to consult with insurance regulators throughout the country on issues affecting Washington state and the nation.

The NAIC invited Vick to its 215th national meeting to further the partnership between regulators and legislators. Vick serves as the ranking Republican on the House Business and Financial Services Committee, which covers issues relating to licensing and regulation of businesses, insurance and the solvency of insurance companies, and the rates and practices of insurance companies.

“I was honored to represent Washington state at this conference and look forward to the work in continuing to ensure consumers remain protected,” said Vick. “As the sector evolves, we must continue to improve regulation standards in order to maintain a stable and competitive market.”

The NAIC is the U.S. standard-setting and regulatory support organization created and governed by the chief insurance regulators from the 50 states, the District of Columbia and five U.S. territories. Through the NAIC, state insurance regulators establish standards and best practices, conduct peer reviews, and coordinate their regulatory oversight. NAIC staff supports these efforts and represents the collective views of state regulators domestically and internationally. NAIC members, together with the central resources of the NAIC, form the national system of state-based insurance regulation in the U.S. For more information, visit www.naic.org.
