Uniformity Vs. Autonomy In Insurance Regulation: Part 1

By David F. Hauge

Nicole Zayac’s and David Hauge’s article, “Uniformity Vs. Autonomy In Insurance Regulation: Part 1,” was published in Law360 on February 8, 2017.

From the article…

“In recent years, the pressure for uniformity of insurance regulation among the states has intensified, resulting in the weakening of Congress’s “hands off” tradition with respect to insurance regulation. Notably, the past few years have seen several insurance-related, legislative actions carried out on a federal level. In addition, there are increasing international pressures towards uniformity with respect to certain aspects of regulation in the United States.

At the same time, there have been innovations and growing political forces supporting the retention of state autonomy in insurance regulation. Both historic influences and new developments created a counter pressure to maintain the current system.”
