Obama cancels appearance at state insurance commissioners' meeting

President Obama has canceled a planned address at the National Association of Insurance Commissioners' annual meeting in Seattle, an NAIC official tells The Hill.

The White House had announced Thursday that Obama would address the group on Tuesday and discuss the implementation of the healthcare reform law. The state insurance commissioners' group is playing a key role in that regard as it helps define key insurance regulations.

The reason for the cancellation is unclear at this point.

Update: The NAIC at 2:49 p.m. released a press statement saying Obama cancelled his appearance because of a scheduling change.
