ATLANTA – Today, Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner John F. King released the following statement in response to the conviction of former Commissioner Jim Beck:

“While today is a somber one for our state, I commend the U.S. Attorney’s office and our law enforcement professionals for their work bringing this case to a close and ensuring justice for the gross misuse of Georgia Underwriting Association dollars."

“When Governor Kemp appointed me to this role, I was tasked with restoring integrity and ethics to this office, and that’s been my priority since day one. I look forward to continuing to move this Agency into the future, leaving behind the corruption of the past, and putting Georgia consumers first.”


The mission of the Office Commissioner of Insurance and Safety Fire is to protect Georgia families by providing access to vital insurance products and safe buildings through fair regulation that creates economic opportunities for all Georgians.
