Washington Outlook: Capital Wrapup

INSURANCE

In effort to have the federal government regulate insurance for the first time is bogged down in intra-industry squabbling. House Energy & Commerce Committee Chairman John D. Dingell (D-Mich.) won little support for a proposal to have the government supervise the solvency of insurers while allowing states to continue regulating rates.
