Agents’ Advocate

HB 4018 Dead

Today we received this message from Rep. Paul Holvey, Chair of the House Business and Labor Committee:

After careful consideration I have decided not to hear or move HB 4018 Auto Rate Determination this short session. I wanted to give you all a heads up on that decision.


Paul Holvey
Oregon State Representative
House District 8

Grassroots Effort Made the Difference

Thank you to everyone who participated in PIA’s grassroots effort to stop this bill!  You were a key part of Rep. Holvey’s decision making process.  Part of that decision was whether or not he thought he could get the votes on the committee.  By writing to members of the committee, you helped to put the pressure on to defeat the bill.

Participation by our members is something valuable about PIA.  Agents are great!  We are very proud of you.  You saved your clients some huge rate increases.  We were glad to be partners in the insurance industry’s efforts on this bill.

Denni Ritter, of the American Property Casualty Insurance Association, said: “Lana – your agents are always so on it.  We really appreciate their partnership in Oregon.”

Again, thank you very much!

Thanks, Lana
