NAIFA Prepares to Work with the 114th Congress

NAIFA is one of the nation’s oldest and largest financial services organizations representing the interests of insurance professionals from every Congressional district in the United States. A key component of its mission is to “advocate for a positive legislative and regulatory environment” for insurance and financial advisors and their clients.

As a part of this effort, NAIFA is committed working in a positive, constructive way with the 114th Congress when it is sworn in early next year.

In addition to congratulating the new members of the 114th Congress, NAIFA provided incoming freshmen members with a copy of Securing America's Financial Future – a detailed portrait of NAIFA members, who they are and how they serve constituent clients.

NAIFA congratulates the 114th House committee chairs and ranking members, and looks forward to working with the following House leaders named to the top posts of committees with jurisdiction of NAIFA issues.

House Ways and Means
Paul Ryan (R-WI), Chair
Sandy Levin (D-MI), Ranking Member

House Financial Services Committee
Jeb Hensarling (R-TX), Chair
Maxine Waters (D-CA), Ranking Member

House Energy & Commerce Committee
Fred Upton (R-MI), Chair
Frank Pallone (D-NJ), Ranking Member

House Education & the Workforce Committee
John Kline (R-MN), Chair
Bobby Scott (D-VA), Ranking Member

We also look forward to working with Senate committee chairs, who will be named at a later date.
Individual NAIFA members are also offering to serve as resources on insurance and financial issues in the district. And hundreds of NAIFA members are planning to attend NAIFA’s Annual Congressional Conference on May 19-20, 2015, to further to establish and cultivate relationships with lawmakers, to share their expertise, and educate them on the value of life insurance, annuities, retirement savings, and employee benefits for 75 million American families.

Until the 114th Congress takes office, NAIFA will of course continue its work with the 113th Congress, including efforts to ensure enactment of NARAB II.
