Call & Tell Congress: Support the Insurance Industry Competition Act

Urge your Senators to Co-Sponsor S. 618! Urge your Representatives to Co-Sponsor HR 1081!

Whether it is home, auto, property or commercial insurance, American families and businesses all rely on insurance. Americans have a right to be confident that if they are paying for insurance coverage, their insurance carrier will be there for them if tragedy strikes.

The “Insurance Industry Competition Act” has been introduced in both the U.S. House of Representatives and in the Senate, respectively. For more than 6 decades, the insurance industry has operated beyond the reach of Federal anti-trust laws. This critical legislation would repeal the industry’s anti-trust exemption and give the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission the authority hold insurance companies accountable for their behavior.

In the Senate, the legislation is already sponsored by Senators Leahy, Specter, Lott, Reid and Landrieu. In the House, the measure is sponsored Representatives DeFazio, Taylor, Jindal, Melancon, Alexander and Jones.

Please call your Member of Congress and U.S. Senators today and urge them to co-sponsor this legislation today!
