NAIC President and North Dakota Insurance Commissioner
We commend the U.S. Senate’s action today to approve legislation to reauthorize the terrorism risk insurance program for seven years. With TRIA’s expiration looming at the end of this year, it remains a critical priority that Congress move promptly to ensure a sustained and stable marketplace for terrorism insurance. We are also pleased to see the inclusion of the National Association of Registered Agents and Brokers Reform Act (NARAB II) as an amendment to the TRIA bill.

Statement from NAIC President Adam Hamm on U.S. Territories
“We thank President Obama and CMS for the actions taken today to address the potentially destabilizing impact of ACA market reforms on the territories without the individual mandate and sufficient subsidies. Three months ago, NAIC members, including several commissioners from the U.S. territories met with the President, former HHS Secretary Sebelius, CMS Administrator Tavenner, and other senior White House officials to discuss this important issue. We appreciate this action that reflects our recommendations.”

The NAIC launched ‘Protecting the Future,’ an educational initiative about the indispensable role state-based insurance regulation plays in strengthening the U.S. economy. This unprecedented education program from the NAIC is being deployed in Washington, D.C.; Brussels, the capital of the European Union; and in Basel, Switzerland, the seat of the Financial Stability Board (FSB) for the G-20.

“The U.S.’s state-based insurance regulation system has an unmatched track record and can best adapt to meet our future economic and financial challenges,” said Senator Ben Nelson, NAIC CEO.

“Our proven system continues to effectively evolve as the states respond to emerging issues, new products, innovations and changes in the financial services landscape,” said NAIC President and North Dakota Insurance Commissioner Adam Hamm.
