The article reports that despite the GOP victory, in which it won 675 legislative seats in the U.S. in fall 2010, it produced few sweeping, industry-friendly legislative changes beyond tort reform. As reported, only 22 states in the country have enacted tort reform and it is being anticipated by the insurance industry experts that 2012 will not bring more pro-industry reforms because lawmakers in the country are preparing for 2012 elections.
