Statement from Insurance Commissioner Al Redmer, Jr. on Passing of Speaker Mike Busch

​Today, we mourn the passing of Speaker of the House Mike Busch and send our condolences to his wife and daughters during this time.

“From 1991-2003, I served with Mike in the House of Delegates. In 2003, he was the Speaker when I served as the Minority Leader. For most of my years in the House, he was Chair of the Economic Matters Committee, which handled insurance issues,” said Insurance Commissioner Al Redmer, Jr. “ Over the years and as I have served as Insurance Commissioner, we worked closely together on many insurance issues. Regardless of any policy disagreements you might have with Mike, he was always a gentleman and a statesman. He will be missed by many and his impact on our state will be his legacy.”
