National PIA members to converge on Washington.

WASHINGTON: The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) members will converge on Washington, D.C. April 24-25 for the 2018 PIA Federal Legislative Summit.

PIA National President Tim Russell said, "PIA's national advocacy over the past year led to legislative victories for agents on vital matters, like the inclusion of small businesses in the tax relief bill passed by Congress, and the further postponement to 2022 of the Affordable Care Act's Cadillac Tax. Our annual legislative summit is a key opportunity for PIA members to solidify their relationships with members of Congress, in order to continue to advance our issues." The annual PIA Federal Legislative Summit is a gathering of PIA members from around the country who come together to meet with their members of Congress and advocate their positions on issues of importance to Professional Insurance Agents.

PIA members will advocate for solutions that enable agents to better serve their clients and communities by encouraging Congress repeal the Federal Insurance Office (FIO), protect a strong and stable crop insurance program and reinstate fair and just compensation in healthcare. Another priority is securing a long-term authorization of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The NFIP has faced a string of short-term reauthorizations by Congress. The program originally expired on September 30, 2017, when its 5-year authorization ended. It was then extended until December 8th, then again until December 22nd, then extended again until January 19, again until February 8, and again until March 23.
