  • PCI Encouraged by Trump’s Infrastructure Plan
  • WASHINGTON — Dave Snyder, vice president of policy, research, and international at the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI) issued the following statement in response to the release of President Trump’s Legislative Outline for Rebuilding Infrastructure in America.

    “PCI is encouraged with the beginning of what we hope will be a serious conversation about the nation’s infrastructure challenges.

    “Upgrading roadway design, addressing congestion, and generally improving the condition of our infrastructure could help reduce motor vehicle crashes, deaths, and injuries.

    “Assisting communities with mitigation efforts, such as elevating homes at risk of flooding, improving stormwater management systems, and strengthening buildings also are critical for communities to prepare for, and recover from extreme weather events.

    “PCI hopes this dialogue develops into meaningful outcomes that will improve the nation’s infrastructure and save lives, as well as money.”

  • PCI promotes and protects the viability of a competitive private insurance market for the benefit of consumers and insurers. PCI is composed of nearly 1,000 member companies, representing the broadest cross section of insurers of any national trade association. PCI members write $220 billion in annual premium, 37 percent of the nation's property casualty insurance.
