Networks Financial Institute at Indiana State University has launched a new Web site that will focus on issues that are driving insurance regulation and reform efforts.
The institute, a non-profit organization founded in 2003, plans for the new Web site to serve as clearinghouse for resources on regulatory modernization and reform, including scholarly abstracts, white papers, research articles, and journal publications, all focusing on the current state of the insurance industry.
Topics featured on the new site include: dual federal/state insurance regulation and its impact on market competition; optional federal insurance charters; regulating the market for terrorism insurance, making state regulation more efficient and effective; and the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s blueprint for a modernized regulatory structure.
Information sources include the American Council of Life Insurers; the National Association of Insurance Commissioners; The Journal of Insurance Regulation ; U.S. Chamber of Commerce; Competitive Enterprise Institute; American Enterprise Institute; Casualty Actuarial Society; The Economist; the Government Accountability Office; the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs; the National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies; University of Missouri-Columbia School of Law; National Conference of Insurance Guaranty Funds; National Organization of Life and Health Insurance Guaranty Associations; National Council on Compensation Insurance; Heritage Foundation; Insurance Legislators Foundation; the U.S. House of Representatives, Committee on Financial Services; National Underwriter; and numerous Networks Financial Institute studies and publications.
