This meeting has been canceled. Please join us for the next Insurance and Tort Reform Committee Meeting on March 21.
The committee will work with Chamber members who are independent brokers and agents, Property & Casuality carriers, life insurers, health underwriters, and state regulators to ensure that Nevada's insurance climate is balanced and fair. The committee will also review legislative proposals to make Nevada's legal system simpler, fairer and faster for everyone. The committee will approach reform comprehensively not only working to change the laws, but also advocating for a more fair legal climate. This committee will delve into the issues facing the industry, including:
Work with brokers and agents to address federal health care issues and the Silver State Exchange
Work with the insurance community and state regulators on policy issues that impact businesses
Create and maintain public support for legal reform, including building alliances with groups and organizations to advance the legal reform agenda
Enact common sense reforms to ensure fairness in liability suits
Ensure damage awards are fair and equitable, eliminate frivolous lawsuits, and enforce legal ethics rules
Co-Chairs: Tom Burns, Cragin & Pike and Bill Wright, Chamber Insurance & Benefits
