Independent Insurance Agents of Indiana
The Independent Insurance Agents of Indiana, Inc. (IIAI), has one of the most active and successful state government affairs programs in the country. This is due to several factors including having a full-time lobbyist available and having a knowledgeable and active grassroots network. Because of the highly regulated nature of the insurance industry, particularly to agents, the IIAI's government affairs program is one of the most important areas that your association pursues. There are hundreds of bills introduced each session that could positively or negatively effect independent agents that are followed and acted upon by the IIAI. The IIAI has set up the following links to legislative and regulatory pages that may be of interest to independent agents.
