SUCCESSES:
Hoffman led FSR’s tax reform strategy and engagement, resulting in multiple key outcomes for banks, insurers, payment companies, and asset managers. She led Congressional Review Act overrides of regulations that would have permitted states and municipalities to offer retirement plans to private sector participants absent protections required by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). She played a central role bringing to enactment the National Association of Registered Agents and Brokers, a national market access clearinghouse for insurance professionals working in multiple states. NAIFA’s Dodd-Frank efforts, led by Hoffman, included both securing the statutory language to prevent the SEC from imposing an onerous harmonized standard of customer care, and stopping an effort to allow financial planners to gain government sanctioned market share by imposing unnecessary regulations on financial professionals. Additionally, Hoffman stopped efforts to repeal the McCarran-Ferguson Act antitrust exemption that would weaken insurance marketplace competition.
