TURNER, ME — Rep. Josh Morris, the lead Republican on the Maine Legislature’s Insurance Committee, today asked the Maine Bureau of Insurance to investigate recent reports that Senate President Troy Jackson may have engaged in fraudulent insurance practices.
“Insurance fraud is not a victimless crime,” Morris wrote in the letter. “I am writing on behalf of the thousands of Mainers that buy insurance, play by the rules, and are concerned about rising costs. Any potential malfeasance should be taken seriously and investigated.”
According to Maine law, the Superintendent of Insurance has the authority to investigate insurance fraud. Representative Morris is a senior member of the Maine House Republican caucus. He serves as the lead Republican on the Health Coverage, Insurance, and Financial Services Committee. He represents part or all of the towns of Leeds, Turner, and Wayne.
