The current issue of the Journal of Insurance Regulation features an article adapted from a NAMIC Issue Analysis paper published last year. The JIR is a peer-reviewed quarterly journal published by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners.
NAMIC members will recall that the paper, "The Assault on McCarran-Ferguson and the Politics of Insurance in the Post-Katrina Era," was instrumental in NAMIC's effort to educate policymakers about the purpose of the insurance antitrust exemption afforded by McCarran and the important role it plays in maintaining healthy, competitive insurance markets. The paper was written for NAMIC by Dr. Lawrence Powell, a professor of insurance and financial services at the University of Arkansas, Little Rock. In article version of the paper that appears in the JIR, Powell thanks NAMIC for supporting of his efforts in a footnote on the first page.
Direct questions to NAMIC’s Vice President of Public Policy Robert Detlefsen, Ph.D.
