Advocacy in Alabama

Property owners in coastal areas in the southeastern United States and as far north as Massachusetts continue to struggle to find home insurance they can afford through a company they can trust. UP recently addressed this issue before Alabama Governor Bentley’s Affordable Homeowners Insurance Commission. In our presentation, Executive Director Amy Bach suggested specific regulatory and legislative reforms that could help bring prices down and restore competition and consumer choice in Alabama.

Because these reforms would help all the states facing this problem, UP is promoting them to decision-makers across the country at the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. There is never a shortage of insurance industry representatives at high level meetings where solutions to crises such as this are debated. UP’s role as a national voice for consumers is more critical now than ever.
