Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the authority granted under s. 601.41 (3), Stats., and the procedure set forth in s. 227.18, Stats., the Office of the Commissioner of Insurance (OCI) will hold a public hearing to consider the adoption of the proposed rule-making order affecting s. Ins 6.57 (4), Wis. Adm. Code, relating to lowering the listing fees for resident insurance agents.
Hearing Information
Date & Time   Location
February 8, 2000   Room 6
Tuesday   OCI
10:00 A.M.   121 East Wilson St.
Analysis Prepared by the Office of the Commissioner of Insurance
Statutory authority: ss. 600.01 (2), 601.31 (1) (n), 601.41 (3), 601.42, 628.11 and 628.34 (12)
Statutes interpreted: ss. 600.01 and 628.34 (12)
Wisconsin has experienced a strong economy and a growing and competitive insurance industry. At the same time, OCI has been a good fiscal steward and has not grown at the same rate as the insurance industry, allowing OCI to reduce fee collections. Effective use of information technology and increased efficiency in agency operations has resulted in a reduced need for revenue from the industry. This change would lower the listing fees paid by insurers for resident agents from $8.00 to $7.00.
