On June 8, 2011, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced the appointment of Assemblyman Jonathan Bing to serve as Special Deputy Superintendent of the New York Liquidation Bureau, an agency tasked with protecting policyholders and creditors of insurance companies that have gone bankrupt. Bing steps in as the successor to Dennis J. Hayes, who was appointed to the position in September 2009. Bing’s appointment ends his fifth term in the New York State Assembly, where he has represented the 73rd District since November 2002. During his tenure in the New York State Assembly, among the laws that Bing authored were two aimed at reducing administrative burdens in the insurance and real estate brokerage industries. Bing also served on several New York State Assembly committees, including the Insurance committee.
