The article focuses on the effort of the House of Representatives in the U.S. to pass the National Association of Registered Agents and Brokers (NARAB) Reform Act. The legislation would establish NARAB as a nonprofit organization that provides multistate licensing, continuing education and other insurance qualification needs. The Senate did not take up the bill before the 110th Congress but further action on NARAB was considered when Representatives David Scott and Geoff Davis were re-elected.
