NCOIL is a legislative organization comprised principally of legislators serving on state insurance and financial institutions committees around the nation. NCOIL writes Model Laws in insurance, works to both preserve the state jurisdiction over insurance as established by the McCarran-Ferguson Act seventy years ago and to serve as an educational forum for public policy makers and interested parties.
Founded in 1969, NCOIL works to assert the prerogative of legislators in making state policy when it comes to insurance and educate state legislators on current and perennial insurance issues.
TOWARD THAT END, NCOIL WORKS TO:
Educate state legislators on current and perennial insurance issues
Help state legislators from different states interface effectively with each other
Improve the quality of insurance regulation
Assert the prerogative of legislators in making state policy when it comes to insurance
Speak out on Congressional initiatives that attempt to encroach upon state primacy in overseeing insurance
Many legislators active in NCOIL chair or are members of the committees responsible for insurance in their respective state houses across the country. All states are either general or contributing NCOIL members.
