Biographical/Historical Note:     The Department of Insurance was created in 1969 (Ch. 69-106, Laws) to assume the duties of the Insurance Commissioner's Office.  The department was headed by the Insurance Commissioner and Treasurer and regulated all forms of insurance including rates and policy forms. It determined if companies were financially sound; tested and licensed all agents, solicitors, adjusters, and bail bondsmen; and enforced the Insurance Code, the State Fire Marshal Law, the Firemen's and Police Officers' Retirement Fund, and the Liquified Petroleum Gas Law.  In addition, the Department sponsored legislation for consumer protection and coordinated the state's property and casualty loss prevention self-insurance programs.  On January 7, 2003, the department was combined with the Department of Banking and Finance into a new Department of Financial Services under a Chief Financial Officer, a post which combined the former offices of Treasurer and Comptroller.
