Optional Federal Chartering and Regulation of Insurance Companies
Draft Legislation
About This Event

This is the second AEI conference on optional federal chartering of insurance companies. Since the first, on June 3, 1999, the issue has continued to receive attention within the insurance industry and in Congress, and major industry groups have begun drafting possible legislation. The ABA Insurance Association, an affiliate of the American Bankers Association, has drafted the first such effort.

At this symposium, experts in insurance law and policy and representatives of organizations that have a stake in new legislation will comment on ABAIA’s draft legislation, which will be examined section by section.
