The Consumer Federation of America (CFA) is issuing a consumer alert to federal and state lawmakers that the National Conference of Insurance Legislators (NCOIL) has a strong industry bent.

"Perhaps because so many of their members are affiliated with the insurance industry, NCOIL consistently promotes industry self-regulation and weak oversight of insurance abuses."
