Insurance Commissioner | Date Posted: Monday, May 20, 2013



WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 20, 2013) – Last week, Karen Weldin Stewart met with members of her Congressional delegation to discuss insurance issues affecting the Delaware residents. Commissioner Stewart joined insurance regulators from more than 35 states and territories in Washington, D.C. to meet with representatives from various federal agencies as well as their elected Members of Congress. Coordinated by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), the meetings enhance collaboration between state and federal officials on a national scale. “The intersection of state and federal policy has never been more critical to the insurance sector as it is right now,” said Commissioner Stewart. “My job is to protect consumers, and part of that is to ensure that decisions made in Washington are in the best interest of the citizens of Delaware.”
Regulators were briefed by Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, of the Department of Health and Human Services and Governor Daniel K. Tarullo, of the Federal Reserve Board. Congressman Randy Neugebauer of Texas, chair of the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Housing and Insurance, also addressed the group. Subjects discussed included the impact of Dodd-Frank and Affordable Care Act on states, the agenda of the House Financial Services Committee as well international regulatory developments. Commissioner Stewart was pleased with the outcome of the meetings and stated, “The First State is fortunate to have such dedicated representatives in Washington, D.C., and I look forward to working with them on all matters of insurance that impact the lives of Delawareans.”
