Commissioner of Insurance Jim Donelon was sworn in today following his election
on September 30, 2006. Donelon served as the appointed Commissioner from February
16, 2006, until last month's special election.
"I am honored to continue serving as Commissioner of Insurance and I am committed
to protecting our consumers and keeping the dialogue going with insurance companies
to let them know Louisiana is a great place to do business," Donelon said.
Commissioner Donelon added that he is stimulated by the challenges that lie before
him. "I look forward to continuing to attract more insurers to our state,"
Donelon said. "We have a professional regulatory climate here in Louisiana
and that won't change. I will maintain our system of fair and balanced insurance
regulation, with the consumer always uppermost in my mind."
Commissioner Donelon was sworn in by his brother Clem Donelon.
