NAIC Supports Flood Bill
Statement of John M. Huff NAIC President and Missouri Insurance Director

NAIC President and Missouri Insurance Director & Insurance John M. Huff
NAIC President
and Missouri Insurance Director
It is important that consumers have choices when it comes to insurance coverage. Removing barriers to the development of a private market for flood insurance will help provide those options. The Market Parity and Modernization Act encourages new private market development as an alternative to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) while maintaining strong consumer protections. We commend the House of Representatives for passing this bill, and thank Congressmen Dennis Ross (FL) and Patrick Murphy (FL) for their leadership. We encourage the Senate to act quickly to pass this bipartisan legislation.

NAIC Responds To Metlife Court Decision

North Dakota Insurance Commissioner and NAIC FSOC Representative
The U.S. District Court's opinion released today confirms what members of the NAIC have long argued: the Financial Stability Oversight Council's (FSOC) designation of Metlife as a systemically important financial institution is flawed.

"State insurance regulators are directly involved in national and international efforts to limit the potential for a financial firm to disrupt the global economy," said North Dakota Insurance Commissioner Adam Hamm, who is also the NAIC's representative on the FSOC. "Too often, discussions regarding systemic threats to the economy don't acknowledge the unique characteristics of the insurance business model or the strengths of our stable state-based regulatory system."

"State regulators serving on FSOC have previously pointed out concerns with its analytical approach, including FSOC's inability to demonstrate that MetLife's failure would disrupt the broader economy," said John M. Huff, NAIC President and Missouri Insurance Director. "Insurance regulators continue to improve our supervisory tools, expanding our abilities to effectively supervise — a job we have done successfully for more than 145 years. While we share the objective of reducing systemic risk, the court's opinion confirms our assertion that FSOC has missed the mark concerning insurance."
