Open letter to the U.S. House: No federal bailouts for government-run property insurance plans


A coalition of eight free-market and taxpayer groups, including R Street, today sent an open letter to members of the U.S. House of Representatives warning that the recently introduced H.R. 6477 would stick taxpayers with the bill for potentially tens of billions of dollars in property insurance claims. Other groups signing on to the letter include Taxpayers for Common Sense, Americans for Prosperity, the Taxpayer Protection Alliance, National Taxpayers Union, the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste, the Center for Individual Freedom and the Competitive Enterprise Institute.
