"I'm honored to serve on the Advisory Committee to the Federal Insurance Office. As a state regulator, I know how important it is speak up for consumers make industry play by the rules. The Federal Insurance Office has a monumental task before it in spotting systemic risk, also known as the too-big-to-fail syndrome. I look forward to working with my colleagues from around the country to come up with proactive solutions to prevent economic disasters like the one we're still recovering from."
