Insurance: State and Federal Law
The McCarran Ferguson Act of 1945 leaves regulation of insurance up to individual states, and generally guarantees freedom from federal interference as long as states do something to regulate the insurance transaction:
...state law shall govern the regulation of insurance and that no act of Congress shall invalidate any state law unless the federal law specifically relates to insurance. The act thus mandates that a federal law that does not specifically regulate the business of insurance will not PREEMPT a state law enacted for that purpose (McCarran, 2005)
