InsurPac is the political action committee (PAC) of the national Big "I". Established in 1975 to complement IIABA's legislative program, InsurPac has become the
largest property & casualty insurance industry PAC in the country.
While the insurance industry is state regulated, and independent agents and brokers strive to maintain state regulation of insurance, there are many federal issues that affect insurance agents including flood insurance, health insurance, terrorism insurance, tax laws and business regulation.
Last year South Carolina shattered records in supporting InsurPac, and we can't thank you enough. Usually states are recognized for averaging contributions of $100 per agency, but last year South Carolina doubled that with an average of $200 per agency. We meant it when we said to "Give what you can," that every dollar counts, and our receipts reflect that sentiment.
We had the largest overall increase (+$10,675) in contributions as well as the largest number of contributors than any other state.
South Carolina wasn't alone in stepping it up for InsurPac in 2018. 2017 was a record-breaking year nationally as well. They established a new record of more than $1.11 million dollars in contributions; a record number of states earned Eagle Awards by averaging $100 or more per member agency; and a record number of Young Agents contributed a record total of $139,118 to the overall amount.
Federal issues of importance this year include long-term re-authorization and reform of the National Flood Insurance Program, crop insurance, tax reform, industry regulatory reform, health care and cybersecurity. Learn more about any of these issues on our
