Rep. Carbaugh named to the executive committee of NCOIL

STATEHOUSE – State Representative Martin Carbaugh (R-Fort Wayne) was named to the executive committee of the National Conference of Insurance Legislators (NCOIL).

The NCOIL serves to help state lawmakers make more informed decisions on insurance issues affecting their constituents. The organization also serves as the voice of state legislators in Washington in regards to federal proposals influencing state insurance regulation.

“It is great to see that my experience in the insurance and financial services industries and the knowledge I have gained as the Vice Chair of the House Committee on Insurance have provided me the opportunity to better serve my constituents on the executive committee of NCOIL,” said Rep. Carbaugh. “I am excited to see what ideas I can bring to the discussion as well as the insight I will gain from state legislators across the country.”

The NCOIL convenes three times each year to discuss current insurance policy issues, to hear from consumers and the insurance industry and to hold committee meetings. This national organization also works to speak out on Congressional initiatives that attempt to intrude upon a state’s authority for insurance.

“It’s a pleasure to see a fellow Hoosier legislator join Representative Matt Lehman and I in representing Indiana on this executive committee,” said State Senator Travis Holdman (R-Markle). “The committee will be well-served with Martin’s business expertise and his experience. I look forward to working with him on important insurance issues, including consumer protections, and speaking out against federal government action that encroaches upon state initiatives.”
