The Chairperson referred Committee members to the Fiscal Note. 

Lee Modesitt, Director of Governmental Affairs and Communication with the Kansas Insurance Department, testified in support of the bill.  He said that the bill proposes changes to two provisions of the Kansas insurance statutes, both of which are required for accreditation with the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC).  He summarized that HB2134 is important to the state of Kansas as we go through the NAIC accreditation process later this year and ensures we maintain Kansas authority over Kansas companies.  Mr. Modesitt responded to Committee questions.
