AAPIA continues to work hard for you in every state! We have been busy in New Jersey, Illinois, Georgia, as well as other states fighting proposed legislation that would negatively affect your business and your license.
We have met with legislators in Illinois, and have appeared before the Financial Institutions and Insurance Committee in New Jersey to oppose new laws that would impose fee caps on all claims. (click here to listen to the hearing in which Jonathan Wilkofsky, stating that he is speaking on behalf of NJPIA and NAPIA, tries unsuccessfully to get the New Jersey Financial Institutions and Insurance Committee to extend the proposed fee cap on catastrophic losses to all losses, and goes on to demonize the public adjusting industry and ask for even more regulation).
We are happy to report that the New Jersey Munõz Bramnick Bill (A-3519), which does not contain the amendment to impose the fee cap on all claims, recently passed 66-6-1 in the New Jersey Assembly.
We continue in our efforts to support your business.
