Maine Legislative Panel Endorses Kofman to be Insurance Superintendent

February 14, 2008

Maine Gov. John Baldacci’s nominee for the open post of Maine insurance superintendent has won the endorsement of a legislative review committee split along party lines.

The 8-5 vote by the Insurance and Financial Services Committee this week virtually assures Senate confirmation of Mila Kofman. It would take a two-thirds majority in the Senate to reverse the committee’s Democratic majority recommendation.

Kofman, an associate research professor at Georgetown’s Health Policy Institute in Washington, D.C., worked at the U.S. Department of Labor on state and federal health care initiatives from 1997 to 2001.

The governor’s office says Kofman has served as a consumer representative at the National Association of Insurance Commissioners since 2002 and was appointed co-editor of the Journal of Insurance Regulation in 2005.
