Alabama Center for Insurance Information & Research


One of the recommendations to come out of Governor Bentley's Affordable Homeowners Insurance Commission was creation of the Alabama Center for Insurance Information & Research. The Governor signed an executive order establishing the center on Oct. 23, 2013. HHII's own numbers wizard, Earl Janssen, was appointed to the center's board of directors.  The center's director is Dr. Lawrence S. Powell, who has also agreed to be on the Governor's and Coastal Legislators' Insurance Work Group (the Work Group).

The center had its first formal meeting May 5, 2015.  Earl is 5th. person seated at the table from the left.

Both Governor Bentley and Dr. Powell addressed the meeting.

Perhaps Earl's presence on the board will be one of the drops of water that he refers to in the following muse:

A flood starts with a drop of water that falls from the sky. This small drop is so small and insignificant to start with that we all laugh at it as just a rain drop. If that rain drop continues to fall we get, maybe a glass full then a bucket and along the way the rivers and streams begin to swell so that nothing can hold them back.

This is much like the idea that we are being treated un fair in our insurance premiums. The legislators and everyone else laughed at us, but a few diehards stuck with this idea of fairness in insurance premiums. Today we stand on the brink of a flood and the rain continues to fall on our head. I think that there is a song about that, but that is another day. As we watch and wait the DOI is building dams to hold the truth back. But folks! the flood is near and we have to be patient and let the water roll over the land and cleanse the land of the un truths and the un wise statements that the DOI has made and continues to make. Let it rain our parade We love it!!.

The Lord cleansed the earth with the great flood, Moses and the Israelites drove thru the red sea and the water cleansed the path behind the Israelites. Water is used through the biblical history as a cleansing agent to all people. The flood is coming DOI.
