Video: Legislative Success in 2014
The Big "I" government affairs team has recently racked up some important achievements on Capitol Hill. Victories on crop insurance and flood insurance reforms, as well as progress in other key areas, are making a difference for independent agents and brokers and their customers.
Where We Stand provides background on major insurance-related federal legislative issues. Every spring more than a thousand agents visit Capitol Hill offices to lobby members of the House, Senate and their staffs on issues that directly impact independent agents and consumers.
This year’s brochure discusses: agent licensing reform, terrorism insurance, tax reform, insurance regulation, health care, crop insurance, InsurPac and grassroots programs.

Video: Big "I" Mentioned on Senate Floor
Sen. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) acknowledged the Big "I" during the Senate floor debate, recognizing the association first in referencing insurance industry groups—particularly notable since the Big “I” is the only group representing independent property-casualty agents to earn a mention. The association worked tirelessly on both of these important issues, which have been the primary subject of multiple Big “I” Legislative Conferences, numerous grassroots alerts and hundreds of hours of shoe-leather lobbying in the halls of Congress. On Jan. 8, 2015, the legislation was finally sent to the President's desk to be signed into law.
InsurPac is THE federal political action committee for independent insurance agents & brokers. It is the largest property-casualty agent PAC with over 5,000 donors each election cycle. Please login to view more information.
The mission of IIABA’s grassroots program is to promote the effectiveness of getting involved at the local level in order to influence the outcome of federal public policy affecting your industry.
