OLDWICK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
In this episode of A.M. BestTV, key officials at the National
Association of Professional Surplus Offices (NAPSLO) discuss excess and
surplus market trends, continuing implementation efforts on the
Nonadmitted and Reinsurance Reform Act (NRRA) and the benefits of that
legislation's home state taxation approach. Brady Kelley, executive
director of NAPSLO, said NRRA has made some dramatic improvements in how
the surplus lines market operates from an efficiency standpoint,
particularly on the tax allocation side, but that there are still some
issues that persists from state to state. Thomas Mulligan, a member of
the NAPSLO board of directors, said he believes there are still areas
for improvement on the eligibility requirements for surplus lines
companies. Richard Bouhan, also a member of the NAPSLO board of
directors and a former longtime executive director, looks back on how
the industry has evolved over the decades. Click on http://www.ambest.com/v.asp?v=napslo214
