  • PCI Applauds Bipartisan Duffy-Heck FIO Reform Bill
  • WASHINGTON — Nat Wienecke, senior vice president, federal government relations at the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI) issued the following statement applauding the introduction of the “Federal Insurance Office Reform Act of 2017.”

    “PCI applauds Reps. Duffy and Heck for introducing the Federal Insurance Office Reform Act of 2017,” said Wienecke. “This bipartisan legislation will reduce FIO’s domestic footprint, eliminate its quasi-regulatory authority, and refocus the FIO on international matters, where it can play an appropriate role in coordinating with the states to develop consensus on U.S. international insurance policy. The bill also limits the bureaucracy from expanding beyond its core mission.

    “PCI looks forward to working with Reps. Duffy and Heck and the Financial Services Committee to move this bill through the legislative process,” concluded Wienecke.
