ABSTRACT
The article highlights the survey on regulatory projects, which estimates that 50 U.S. states, Puerto Rico and District of Columbia will spend more than $1.54 billion in 2009 on the regulation of insurance as reported to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. The author stated that regulatory spending varies significantly nationwide. In addition, experts agree that states that spend the most are not necessarily the best at protecting consumers.
