Greetings Patriots,

Our next meeting will be this Saturday the 14th of February at the Knights of Columbus Hall at 206 Woodrow Street, West Monroe, LA from 10AM until Noon. Our guest will be Matt Parker who is running for Insurance Commissioner.

J. W. Bryan will keep us up to date about onerous trade pacts and where they stand.

We plan to elect new officers so this is an important meeting to attend if you would like to serve.

Lynn Clark would like to lead a discussion about Tea Party Missions.

Here is an excerpt from this web page about the Louisiana department of insurance: http://www.ldi.state.la.us/what-we-do

The Louisiana Department of Insurance (LDI) works diligently to balance the needs of insurance consumers with the insurance industry’s need to run a competitive business. As a regulator, the LDI enforces the laws that provide a fair and stable marketplace with transparent rules so one insurer does not have an unfair competitive advantage over other insurers. The LDI also works to make certain that insurers comply with all the laws in place to protect policyholders.

Louisiana is part of the U.S. insurance regulatory framework which is a highly coordinated state-based national system designed to protect policyholders and to serve the greater public interest through the effective regulation of the U.S. insurance marketplace. Through the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), U.S. insurance regulators establish national standards and best practices, conduct peer reviews and coordinate their regulatory oversight to better protect the interests of consumers while ensuring a strong, viable insurance marketplace.

U.S. insurance regulators also participate in the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) along with the NAIC by participating in major standard setting initiatives, including working with fellow regulators from around the world to better supervise cross-border insurers, identifying systemic risk in the insurance sector, and creating international best practices.

Hope you can make it to the meeting!

I’ll see you there.

Henry Hollenberg
