KAIA members and the association's Government Affairs Team monitor legislation on the state level and lobby members of the Kansas Legislature on issues that impact small businesses and the independent agent system.
KAIA supports ongoing efforts to modernize workers compensation in Kansas, including increased transparency and financial oversight of the state’s assigned risk pool, as well as improvements to level the playing field and reduce the impact of isolated accidents on premiums for small business owners.
KAIA supports a competitive marketplace. We oppose efforts to stifle competition, including unfair trade practices, contract provisions designed to keep competition out of the state, and initiatives that reduce consumer access to agents.
Stabilizing the Cost of Doing Business in Kansas
KAIA supports continued efforts to reduce the cost of doing business and help attract new companies and insurance products to the state, including legal reforms aimed at reducing incentives for litigation and lowering insurance costs for Kansas consumers.
KAIA supports state-level policies to protect Kansas consumers from insurance fraud and abuse, including modernizing minimum auto liability limits and protecting the privacy of consumer data.
