Senate committee to hold hearing on insurance issues

January 23, 2009 

— Consumers, industry representatives and the Mississippi Insurance Department will have the opportunity to discuss statewide insurance issues before the State Legislature at a 3 p.m. special hearing Wednesday in Room 216 of the State Capitol.

The hearing was called by Senate Insurance Committee Chairman Buck Clarke (R-Hollandale).

“We have begun serious discussion on the numerous insurance bills that have been proposed this session. I feel it is important that this committee receive as much data and information as possible. Good information enables us to find ways to keep insurance rates down throughout the state and especially on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. By hearing from all involved, on each side of these issues, we as legislators can make studied and informed decisions regarding the outcome of these pending bills,” Clarke said.

The hearing is open to the public .
