PORTLAND, Ore. - A National Conference of Insurance Legislators panel has approved a resolution asking the U.S. Department of Labor to repeal its controversial fiduciary rule.

The resolution was passed during NCOIL’s recent meetings in Portland, Oregon, where state lawmakers and regulators also addressed cybersecurity and workers’ compensation issues among others.

The Life Insurance & Financial Planning Committee approved the Fiduciary Rule resolution, which next will be considered when the Executive Committee meets again in Las Vegas in November during the NCOIL Annual Meeting.
