Virginia Senator to Address Agent Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C.

March 11, 2004

Sen. George Allen (R-Va.) will speak to members of the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America during their National Legislative Conference next month.

Allen will speak at a breakfast April 22 to more than 900 independent agents and brokers from across the country.

The Big “I” National Legislative Conference is set to take place April 21-23 at the Capital Hilton.

“Sen. Allen has risen, in a short amount of time, to a position of leadership in the United States Senate and nationally,” said Big “I” CEO Robert A. Rusbuldt. “As the elected chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, he is considered a rising star on the national scene. In addition, he is a member of the Senate Small Business and Entrepreneurship Committee, which deals with some of the issues that are crucial to the livelihoods of independent insurance agents and brokers across America. Big ‘I’ members eagerly anticipate hearing his thoughts on issues that affect their businesses, from taxes and macro economic issues, to class action reform, medical liability reform and other insurance issues.”

Sen. Allen became a member of the Senate Republican leadership in his first term. He won his Senate seat in 2000 by winning a tough race against then-Senator Charles Robb (D); Allen was the only Republican to defeat an incumbent Democratic senator that year.

Previously, Allen served as governor of Virginia from 1994 to 1998, a position in which he was limited to a single term by state law. He also served as a U.S. representative from 1991 to 1993, and a member of the Virginia House of Delegates from 1983 to 1991. Allen is the son of the late Washington Redskins football coach George Allen.
