Greg Wren, president of the National Conference of Insurance Legislators, was automatically deposed last week when he resigned as a member of the Alabama House as part of a plea deal with state prosecutors.
Wren, a Republican who represented Montgomery, resigned his legislative seat April 1, the same day he agreed to plead guilty in state court in Montgomery to a misdemeanor charge of using his office for personal gain. He agreed to pay $24,000 restitution, within 90 days, and to cooperate in a continuing investigation of corruption.
Nolan said Breslin assumed the presidency in accordance with NCOIL bylaws, “which provide that the president-elect automatically succeeds to the presidency in the event of a vacancy in that office.”
Wren is a four-term veteran of the Alabama Legislature who was first elected to the Alabama Legislature in 1994. He left the legislature in 2002, but returned in 2006. According to Nolan, Wren has played a key part in NCOIL. He served as a member of its executive committee from 2009 until he resigned last week, and served as chairman of NCOIL’s Former Chair, State-Federal Relations Committee in 2009 and 2010.
