PCI Highlights WC Issues At PCI’s Az Legislative Action Day


Phoenix, AZ - Insurance industry representatives joined with the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI) today in meeting with Arizona legislators and other state government leaders to discuss glass repair reforms, workers compensation and other key legislative items.

“PCI's Legislative Action Day provides a great forum for industry professionals and lawmakers to meet, exchange insights and talk about key issues affecting consumers and property casualty insurers,” said Kelly Campbell, PCI vice president.

This session, PCI and the industry have been advocating legislative proposals to combat fraudulent glass repair practices, in addition to informing lawmakers and consumers about how unnecessary glass repair and fraudulent practices contribute to higher insurance costs. Attendees at the Legislative Action Day urged lawmakers to pass HB 2463, the Consumer Fraud Bill, which identifies specific actions by glass companies and representatives as fraudulent.

Other topics discussed included workers compensation, photo radar and tort reform.

This year's Legislative Action Day featured a picnic lunch on the lawn of the state Capitol. Company employees then took advantage of the opportunity to walk the halls of the Capitol and ask questions of their state legislators.

“Company employees truly represent the voice of our industry, and it's important to take advantage of opportunities to engage in a dialogue and educate lawmakers about our industry,” said Campbell.

PCI is composed of more than 1,000 member companies, representing the broadest cross-section of insurers of any national trade association.  PCI members write over $180 billion in annual premium, 37.4 percent of the nation's property casualty insurance.  Member companies write 44 percent of the U.S. automobile insurance market, 30.7 percent of the homeowners market, 35.1 percent of the commercial property and liability market, and 41.7 percent of the private workers compensation market.
