Earl’s 18 years as a Member of Congress and experience as state insurance commissioner and president of NAIC provide an exceptionally strong background for his work in public policy advocacy. He assists clients with complex policy issues before the legislative and executive branches of government.
Congressman Earl Pomeroy served as North Dakota’s at-large U.S. Representative from 1993 to 2011. As he describes it, “I came with President Clinton and left with the Affordable Care Act.” Ending his public sector experience working on landmark health insurance legislation brought Pomeroy’s career full circle: he was the state’s insurance commissioner and president of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners before joining Congress.
While in Congress, Earl was a senior member of the Ways and Means Committee and chair of the Social Security Subcommittee. He applied his unique experience as a financial regulator to a variety of issues before the committee and was widely regarded as a leader on pensions and retirement income security issues.
