A speech by Jim Donelon before the Baton Rouge Press Club on August 22, 2011. Donelon is the Louisiana Insurance Commissioner. He discusses: the approaching peak of hurricane season; the recently updated higher risk for hurricane landfall; the victims of Hurricane Katrina and the need to heed evacuation orders; the benefits of the Federal Flood Insurance program; Louisiana’s ability to attract private sector insurance companies, which is becoming a model for the rest of the country; the safety of insurance fraud investigators, following the tragedy earlier in the summer that took the lives of two investigators; and named storm deductibles.
