The Nevada Department of Business & Industry named Betty C. Baker acting commissioner of the Division of Insurance. Baker will oversee the Division while a replacement is sought for Alice Molasky-Arman, who recently retired as Insurance Commissioner after 27 years of service.
Baker has served as chief insurance counsel of the Division since October 1999. In this position, she has supervised the Legal and Enforcement Sections, handling a case load that included prosecuting violations of the insurance code and defending the Division in administrative hearings. Her role as chief insurance counsel has involved acting as hearing officer for Division hearings when appointed to do so by Commissioner Molasky-Arman. She
has also acted as Insurance Commissioner when appointed by Commissioner Molasky-Arman during her absences.
Additionally, Baker has served on various internal committees within the Division and has advised Division staff members on legal issues as they have arisen.
A nationwide search to find a new Insurance Commissioner has been launched.
