YOUR VOICE AT THE STATEHOUSE
maintains a steady presence among Idaho legislators on matters of insurance and
business issues. IIABI is the independent agents' voice and insurance consumer
advocate at the capitol.
On behalf of IIABI members, IIABI has contracted with Sullivan and Reberger. Lobbyist Colby Cameron monitors insurance activities at the
Statehouse on a daily basis and works in conjunction with industry groups on
issues of common concern.
Legislative Committee meets as needed throughout the year. The Committee tracks pertinent legislation, reviews content and
develops association positions. The Committee then reports to the IIABI Board of
Directors. The Legislative Committee sends Action Alerts to IIABI members
requesting assistance in contacting your legislators on legislation affecting
independent agents. Members of the Legislative Committee are prepared to testify
on legislation in Statehouse Committee Meetings.
IDAPAC: IIABI's state political action committee receives donations from members to assist
Idaho legislative candidates, both incumbents and challengers,
who are supportive of insurance and small business concerns. Solicitations are sent to independent agents during the election
