Agents In Action: Big I NY Members Meet with Key Lawmakers In-District

Untitled design (1).png

Throughout the month of May, approximately 40 independent agents from across the state met with state lawmakers in their districts to call for the passage of pro-consumer legislation to help customers and agencies weather the challenging market. Agents met with 17 lawmakers who were identified as key votes on our bills.

In the meetings, agents advocated in support of several important pieces of legislation,​ including bills to eliminate the diligent effort requirement for commercial excess lines coverage, eliminate the NYC anti-arson application, impose stricter penalties for staged construction accidents and staged auto accidents, and combine agent and broker licenses into a single “producer" license. They also urged the legislature to reject a bill to expand the state's unfair business practices law, which would result in a surge of opportunistic lawsuits against New York businesses.

These meetings helped educate state lawmakers on the importance of our industry and the impact their decisions have on their constituents. Independent agents are powerful advocates for their customers!
