Statement by the National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) on the 2018 Midterm Election Results

PIA will continue to promote the valued role of professional independent insurance agents in the new 116th Congress
November 7, 2018

WASHINGTON – The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) will continue to promote the valued role of professional independent insurance agents in the new 116th Congress by seeking business-friendly policies that encourage a strong, competitive insurance market that serves insurance consumers well.

With the Democratic party now set to control the House, and the Senate to remain in Republican control, PIA encourages the next Congress to find bipartisan solutions to strengthen our economy.

“PIA will continue to advocate for policies that help independent insurance agents protect consumers: a strong National Flood Insurance Program and crop insurance program; the strengthening of employer-sponsored health care; and opposition to proposals that chip away at the successful state insurance regulatory system,” said Jon Gentile, PIA National vice president of government relations.

PIA looks forward to accomplishing some of these goals during the lame-duck session of the 115th Congress, as we prepare for the new Congress to be seated in January.

Founded in 1931, PIA is a national trade association that represents member insurance agents and their employees who sell and service all kinds of insurance, but specialize in coverage of automobiles, homes and businesses. PIA members are Local Agents Serving Main Street America SM. PIA’s web address is www.pianet.com.
