On March 7, Senate Minority Leader Trent Lott (R-MS) told the Senate Judiciary Committee during a hearing on the McCarran-Ferguson Act that it has allowed insurers to engage in "anticompetitive conduct," and that he could not justify exempting the insurance industry from federal antitrust oversight. He acknowledged being a leading critic of the insurance industry after having lost a home to Hurricane Katrina and becoming disgruntled with his insurer. Sen. Lott cosponsored a bill (S. 618), introduced by Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-VT), that would repeal the insurance industry's antitrust exemption. Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-OR) has introduced a similar bill (H.R. 1081) in the House. Sen. Lott is also championing legislation (S. 1061) requiring insurers to disclose property insurance coverage in "plain-English" on the first page of each homeowner's policy. The Federal Trade Commission would be charged with enforcing this disclosure requirement.
