Dir. Lindley-Myers Testifies on RRGs

NAIC Testifies at Hearing Examining the Availability of Insurance for Nonprofits

WASHINGTON (Jan. 29, 2020) — Chlora Lindley-Myers, Director of the Missouri Department of Commerce and Insurance testified before Congress regarding concerns with the Nonprofit Property Protection Act (HR 4523), which would expand the Liability Risk Retention Act (LRRA) to allow Risk Retention Groups (RRGs) to write commercial property coverage.  

 “The limited oversight of non-domiciliary states in the RRG regulatory framework, coupled with the lack of state-run guaranty fund protection and increased risk of insolvencies associated with RRGs, could expose nonprofit organizations and those who rely upon them to unnecessary risks," testified Lindley-Myers.

The hearing was held by the U.S. House Financial Services Subcommittee on Housing, Community Development and Insurance. Lindley-Myers testified on behalf of the NAIC, where she serves as Secretary-Treasurer.
