The Mississippi Department of Insurance will drop a lawsuit filed in 2013 against the National Flood Insurance Program.
Mississippi Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney says he'd like to see security system sales people subject to background checks.
Federal health officials have denied Mississippi's request to set up a state-run health exchange under President Obama's health care law, settling an unusual political dispute in which the Republican governor overruled the state's own insurance commissioner.
Like many Republican elected leaders, Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant is not exactly thrilled about Obamacare's march toward full implementation in 2014.
On Monday, Chaney announced the state will drop the lawsuit with Federal Emergency Management Agency's implementation of a new law passed by Congress meant to alleviate some of the dramatic rate increases facing Mississippi homeowners.
Chaney says his staff monitor FEMA's implementation of the law over the next several months.
