“High auto insurance rates have plagued Louisiana families for years, and while we’ve come up with some band-aids, we haven’t seen any silver bullet solutions,” said Insurance Commissioner Donelon. “I’m hopeful that recommendations made by this task force will be successful where previous efforts have failed.”
“The cost of auto insurance can be a heavy burden for families that are already struggling,” said Representative Kirk Talbot, task force Chairman. “We owe it to Louisiana citizens to try to make insurance in this state affordable.”
Commissioner Donelon has appointed industry and community leaders to serve as members of the task force including Representative Kirk Talbot, Chairman; Senator John Smith, Vice Chairman; Senator Wesley Bishop; Rich Piazza, Louisiana Department of Insurance and representatives from each of the following: Property Casualty Insurers Association of America; American Insurance Association; National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies; Professional Insurance Agents of Louisiana; Louisiana Association of Justices; and Louisiana Motor Transport Association, Inc.
