MONTGOMERY, AL - During the recent annual meeting of the National Conference of Insurance Legislators (NCOIL) Representative Greg Wren (R-Montgomery) was named as Chairman of the State-Federal Relations Committee. NCOIL is the nation's largest organization of legislators from each state who possess an in depth knowledge of the insurance industry. NCOIL legislators work to protect consumers in each state and preserve state regulation of insurance.
"I look forward to working with Rep. Greg Wren to preserve state authority over the business of insurance and to make necessary improvements to the state-based system. I appreciate his willingness to serve NCOIL," said NCOIL President Senator James Seward (NY).
Upon receiving the appointment, Rep. Wren stated "I am honored to be chosen as chair of the State-Federal Relations Committee. Revenues from insurance premium taxes, fees and assessments are the largest source of revenue to Alabama's General Fund budget. I will work tirelessly to oppose federal legislation which could weaken consumer protections and threaten our state budget due to Congressional efforts to create a massive new federal insurance bureaucracy, far-removed from Alabama and the forty-nine other states," concluded Rep. Greg Wren.
NCOIL is an organization of state legislators whose main area of public policy interest is insurance legislation and regulation. Most legislators active in NCOIL either chair or are members of the committees responsible for insurance legislation in their respective state houses across the country.
