Insurance in the Public Policy Crosshairs

09/14/21 8:00am to 9:00am

You are invited to join us on September 14th for a CPCU CE Credit eligible webinar: Insurance in the Public Policy Crosshairs, presented by Jerry Theodorou.

Public policy at the federal and state levels affects P&C insurance in many ways, both positively and negatively. Jerry Theodorou, P&C insurance specialist at the Washington, D.C.-based think tank R Street Institute, will take us through an interactive session on top insurance issues impacting CPCU members and their employers. These include:

- insurers prohibited from using credit-based information in risk-based pricing

- changes to U.S. and global tax rates

- flood insurance

- the role of the Federal Insurance Office

- social inflation, claims inflation and tort reform

- right to repair
