Washington Cracks Down on Insurers

Washington Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler has issued nearly $300,000 in fines and pulled several insurance agents’ licenses when they failed to follow the rules in the first few months of the year.

The Insurance Commissioner’s Office collected a total of $1,210,231 in fines in 2008. This money was deposited into the state’s general fund to pay for other state services.
