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 asFightthe40logo-small.jpgsociation 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.
