President's Message - March 2013
Tom Shores, IAHU President
Boy what a year thus far! First a big thank you to Scott and Colby and all of you who have worked so hard to get our message to the legislators. We are getting close. The house is scheduled to debate and vote on the exchange bill March 13th. By the time you may be reading the house will have voted and the bill will (hopefully) be headed back to the senate then (hopefully) back to Governor Otter for his signature. THEN THE HARD WORK STARTS! Governor Otter will have to put a board together and they will have to make hundreds of decisions. We will be getting an insider’s view of the exchange when Tom Donavan from the DOI speaks to us at the Symposia. (A HUGE THANKS to Trent for getting it together).
We just came home from Washington DC where for the first time in many years we were able to talk to each of our delegation. A special thanks to Senator Risch and Mary Landeau from the commerce committee. They have scheduled hearing on the bill to remove agent commissions from the MLR’s. It is not a done deal but it looks promising. We took some pictures so you would know that we were really there, HA!
We have accomplished a lot this year so far but we have a long way to go. We will have to decide how the agents will be involved in the exchange and how we will get paid. What products will be sold and how they will be sold. We will need your help as this process moves forward.
I want to thank all of you who do so much and no one knows except your family. Keep up the great work of providing the best products we can to our clients. The symposia where the speakers will allow you to expand your business to make you more profitable and better help to protect your clients. We will see you there!
