    The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) has reviewed its past policy positions and current congressional priorities and consulted with PIA membership to develop its top 5 Policy and Advocacy Priorities for 2016:

    • Agent Licensing Uniformity: PIA supports increasing uniformity and reciprocity for producer licensing through state insurance departments and as necessary through targeted federal legislation.
    • Role & Value of Agents in Healthcare Reform: PIA supports the critical role that independent agents play in the sale and servicing of health insurance.
    • Promotion of small business & tax reform: PIA supports a clear and simple tax code and reducing individual and corporate income tax rates for small businesses. PIA opposes tax provisions and regulations that impede small business growth.
    • Protection of state insurance regulation: PIA supports a modern, state-based insurance system and opposes any federal regulation or international standards that would destabilize or supplant state-based regulation.
    • Safeguarding of important P&C programs: PIA supports the vital role and value that independent agents play in the delivery of federal insurance and reinsurance programs, including the federal crop insurance, flood insurance, and terrorism risk insurance programs.

    Anything you would add to or subtract from their list of priorities?
