Advocacy

IIAI and its members advocate at both the state and federal level on policies and regulations that impact the independent agent system. IIAI employs a full-time and part-time lobbyist to oversee monitoring and lobbying at the Iowa Statehouse, while IIAI staff and members work to support IIABA's efforts and to monitor and lobby issues that come before Congress.  Click the links if you would like more information on the Iowa Legislature, US Senate or the US House of Representatives.
