The Hill, a popular Capitol Hill insider publication with political news and opinions, has placed five insurance groups and their lobbyists on its 2015 list of the top lobbyists in Washington for associations.
The insurance trade groups making The Hill’s list are America’s Health Insurance Plans, the American Council of Life Insurers, the American Insurance Association, the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America, and the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America.
“Those named to this year’s list have climbed to the top of their profession, demonstrating an ability to influence Washington’s power brokers on behalf of the interest groups, corporations and industries they represent,” The Hill says in its introduction.
The listing not a power ranking; lobbyists are listed alphabetically.
The insurance groups are among others representing a variety of industries including technology, energy, banking, manufacturing and pharmaceuticals.
Among lobbyists for the property/casualty insurance industry, the Capitol Hill publication cites Leigh Ann Pusey of the AIA for 20 years of advocacy; Bob Rusbuldt and Charles Symington, IIABA, for the extension of the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act in particular; and Nathaniel Wienecke, PCI, also for TRIA and work on cyber security legislation.
The Hill says it will also be publishing a list of top lobbyists for corporations.
