Baton Rouge, La -­ The Gulf State Insurance Information Center (GSIIC), a non-­?profit organization, today launched a new website –– to serve as a repository of information on insurance issues impacting Louisiana. The information available on the site will be specifically about auto, homeowners and business insurance.

“Louisiana has a unique insurance market and this website was established to give the general public information on insurance issues in Louisiana,” Jim Harris, GSIIC spokesperson, said. “We hope this website will serve as a resource for people in Louisiana to obtain accurate and up-­?to-­?date information.”
