This week, independent agents from across the state met in Albany for Independent Agents Advocacy Day.
Agents met with lawmakers on several key issues, including increasing the payroll threshold for the Workplace Safety and Loss Prevention Program, repealing requirement to provide 30 days notice to withdraw from NYSIF Workers Comp policies, and opposing single payer healthcare. Agents also called for repeal of the Scaffold Law, auto photo inspection law, and NYC's anti-arson application.
Throughout the day, we met with over 30 state lawmakers, including productive conversations with the Senate and Assembly leadership and chairs of the insurance committees.
Thank you to all who attended and help make this day a success! Already, many lawmakers have indicated they will support or co-sponsor our issues. Our voices are being heard by those in power, but as always, there is more work to be done.
