Industry getting a "black eye" from Katrina claims

Recently in the industry press, Senator Trent Lott is set on setting the insurance industry on the right path as he is fighting to get his Katrina homeowner claim paid. Apparently his sour experience is motivating him to take on fixing the insurance industry in congress. Many of his peers are pushing for Federal regulation of the insurance industry in lieu of State regulation. If Federal regualtion is passed then the Nation will surely see a change in the industry. No whether or not the change is better or worse will remain to be seen. In the meantime if I was the in charge of the insurance company who is handling the claim for Sen. lott, I certainly would settle it quick! K

Del. Work Comp Reform, Can it Be?

A "little bird" told me that the Governor's taks force assigned to look into a legislative measure to control Delawares wcomp rates, will be putting forward a bill for reform before the end of November. We certainly need it, since most small businesses have a hard time paying the premiums for work comp. Also Pa. & Md have rates significantly lower which does not help when competitiors come into the State and steal Delaware business. Let's keep our fingers crossed for small business sake. K

Hurricane Season , good for all of us

Well, thank goodness the predications for a northeast hurricane did not come true. I do not beleive anyone can be ready enough for a cat 3 or 4 hurricane on the Delmarva penninsula. The insurance industry press is predicting that rates will slide downward in response to the mild season. This is good news for our clients. We will see how things shake out going into the fall and winter. K
