The New York State Senate has unanimously confirmed Governor David A. Paterson's nomination of James J. Wrynn as the 40th Superintendent of the New York State Insurance Department. Wrynn has served as Acting Superintendent since August 20.
"I am pleased that the Senate moved quickly to confirm Jim Wrynn as Superintendent of Insurance. Jim's experience as an insurance lawyer and his expansive involvement in government prepare him well for this position. He will be an asset to the Department and the State in this critical time as the nation moves forward with health insurance reform and financial services regulatory reform," Governor Paterson said.
"I am honored to have been confirmed as Superintendent of the Insurance Department. I thank Governor Paterson for affording me this opportunity to serve the people of New York," Wrynn said.
