In 2011, the Texas legislature will confront an insurance environment characterized by high rates, serious risks to taxpayers, and inadequate investment in disaster mitigation. The Heartland Institute, in cooperation with its partners, will present a half-day program to clarify the nature of the state’s insurance environment and offer solutions from similarly situated states.
Special guest Wayne Goodwin was elected as North Carolina’s insurance commissioner in 2008. He previously served as assistant insurance commissioner. He focuses on consumer advocacy through fair rate-making, injury prevention efforts, and close regulation of insurance company solvency and industry practices. He is the newest member of the Council of State, made up of the 10 statewide elected officials. He also serves as state fire marshal and as state chair of Safe Kids North Carolina and the Arson Awareness Council. Goodwin is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the UNC School of Law.
