FEDERAL INSURANCE OFFICE DIRECTOR STEVEN SEITZ TO ADDRESS NCOIL
Discusses FIO Priorities and State and International Regulatory Interaction
Manasquan, NJ – Commissioner Tom Considine, NCOIL CEO announced that Steven Seitz, Director of the Federal Insurance Office, will participate at the 2019 NCOIL National Summer Meeting in Newport Beach, CA.
“We are excited to hear from Director Seitz about his priorities for the Federal Insurance Office and how NCOIL can partner with the FIO to strengthen state-based regulation of insurance” said Considine. “Having the Director hear directly from NCOIL legislators at the Summer Meeting informs his work and approach and we appreciate his willingness to make the time for NCOIL.”
NCOIL is a national legislative organization with the nation’s 50 states as members, represented principally by
legislators serving on their states’ insurance and financial institutions committees. NCOIL writes Model Laws in
insurance and financial services, works to preserve the State jurisdiction over insurance as established by the
McCarran-Ferguson Act seventy four years ago, and to serve as an educational forum for public policymakers
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 longstanding insurance issues.
