"Insuring the Future of Professional Insurance Agents"
I have enjoyed serving as PIAPAC’s Chairman for this past election cycle. PIAPAC will be supporting Congressional candidates who work towards protecting the interests of independent insurance agents and small business owners down in Washington, DC.
This year, 2016,just three weeks after PIA members advocated for support for the Flood Insurance Market Parity and Modernization Act (H.R. 2901) during the Federal Legislative Summit (FLS), on April 28, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the private flood bill, sponsored by Rep. Dennis Ross (R-FL), to encourage the private flood insurance market in a bipartisan voice vote.
PIAPAC gives us the chance to show our support for those candidates that fight for our interests on Capitol Hill.
We are working hard to ensure that pro-business, pro-insurance legislation is being passed this year. But we need your help to continue to be a force in Washington, DC. Will you continue to stand with us?
Thank you for your support of PIAPAC!
