NCOIL is a legislative organization comprised principally of legislators serving on state insurance and financial institutions
committees around the nation. NCOIL writes Model Laws in insurance, works to both preserve the state jurisdiction over
insurance as established by the McCarran-Ferguson Act seventy years ago and to serve as an educational forum for public
policy makers and interested parties. Founded in 1969, NCOIL works to assert the prerogative of legislators in making
state policy when it comes to insurance and educate state legislators on current and perennial insurance issues.
