State Senator Supports Captive Insurance In SD

Jan 27, 2013

Dan Lederman says one bill positions South Dakota to get in on the captive insurance industry, and another removes a requirement that keeps South Dakota’s ethanol out of certain foreign markets.
Lederman acknowledges that the topic of insurance is not universally scintillating. But he’s excited about House Bill 1061, which allows captive insurance companies to expand. That bill has passed through the House and is heading for the Senate.
