Legislative Committee

The Association President and the Legislative Committee Chairman and members of the legislative committee monitor all insurance related legislation on your behalf during sessions of the Maryland General Assembly. Members are provided with timely legislative bulletins outlining those issues/bills which affect our business. The Association has been involved in the passage of a number of legislative proposals helpful to the Independent Agent and the Maryland Assembly. Conversely, we have successfully opposed measures which would have been counter-productive. The Maryland Big "I" was instrumental in the organization and development of the Maryland Agents Political Action Committee (MAPAC). This is a separate, non-profit, non-partisan, political action committee. It functions to aid those candidates for legislative or statewide office who understand the problems and needs of the independent agent.
