This is the August 21 and 28, 1980 hearing on "Nondiscrimination in Insurance," held before the House Subcommittee on Consumer Protection and Finance of the Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce. From the Opening Statement of James H. Scheuer: "Today we open hearings on H.R. 100, the Nondiscrimination in Insurance Act. [...] Suffice it to say it is totally unacceptable for us in our society today that any segment of our economy be permitted to discriminate in the prices charged or the benefits provided to individuals on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. Recent court decisions have indicated that this may be exactly what many of this country's insurance companies have been engaged in. We are looking at the question of discrimination in the provision of insurance benefits, in the establishment of insurance prices due to sex." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Frank Annuzio, Daphne Bartlett James C. Corman, Christine Davis, John D. Dingell, Catherine East, Charles Hewitt Jr., Donald L. Jordan, Staphen G. Kellison, Barbara J. Lautzenheiser, Douglas Laycock, Perlette Ley, Barbara Mikulski, Patricia Reus, Althea T.L. Simmons, and Diana A. Steele.
