Making Property Insurance More Affordable for Everyone: What Private Companies, State, Local and Federal Governments Should Do

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Van Andel Center

RSVP to Michelle Minton at mminton@cei.org or 202 331-2251

On October 18th, the Heritage Foundation and Competitive Enterprise Institute will convene experts and political leaders from around the country to discuss America's fast changing property insurance environment. Particularly in the hurricane zone that stretches from Texas to South Carolina, homeowners have paid ever-higher homeowners' insurance rates as government-backed insurance entities have grown ever larger. This conference will focus on ways that the United States can retain a vibrant, private insurance industry that provides rationally priced insurance for everyone without placing an enormous burden on taxpayers.
