Recap of Albany Advocacy Day – 2019

  • August 22nd, 2019

On Tuesday, March 5, a team of 10 from the Big-I Tri-County headed up to Albany to discuss pressing issues in the insurance field with several lawmakers in our districts.  

We discussed topics including  – The single payer health system proposal in NYS;  Amendments to the Workplace Safety & Loss Prevention Program; Removing the 30-day notice requirement for policyholder withdrawal from NYSIF;  WC policies;  Repealing the anti-arson law and Section 3411 of the Insurance Law regarding auto photo inspections.  

We received a lot of great feedback from Senate and Assembly members and their staffers and the exchanges were very informative.

Overall, the day was a huge success!
