Do you think that your experience trying to obtain services could be improved upon? If so, State Senator Chip Shields invites you to give testimony on the insurance industry.
SALEM - Oregon State Senator Chip Shields (N/NE Portland) is seeking input from the public on their experience with the insurance industry and ways to improve the insurance market for consumers and small business.
As Chair of the Senate General Government, Consumer and Small Business Protection Committee, Sen. Shields is focused on improving the insurance industry for consumers and small business. The committee is holding an informational hearing on insurance next Wednesday, December 12 in Hearing Room C (see full agenda below). At least 45 minutes of the hearing will be devoted to public testimony.
"Legislators regularly hear from insurance company lobbyists," said Sen. Shields. "It's time we get input from individuals and small businesses whose livelihoods depend on a good, fair product with claims paid timely and as promised. I urge people to come and share their story."
Loreta Boskovic, a resident of North Portland, already plans to testify.
"We're grateful for the opportunity to share our family's experience," Boskovic says. "We've been through a lot, and we're excited to have the ear of decisionmakers. We hope others will take advantage of this unique chance to speak up and be heard."
The amount of time each person will be given to testify will depend on how many people sign up, but individuals should plan on three minutes to share their experience and give their ideas for improvement.
Day: Wednesday, December 12th
Time: Hearing 8-11am, public testimony 10-10:45am
Location: State Capitol, Hearing Room C
