I'm sad to report that I've temporarily taking the list of insurance
references from the Straw Bale Registry offline.
Perhaps the GSBN members could work together to provide informed
to State Farm and share information that would educate their
underwriters and claims adjusters about straw-bale construction.
I have read on multiple sources that most insurance companies are
canceling policies left and right. Explanations vary, but there is
agreement that the goal is to cut the number of policies, not to
provide consistent, logical or customer oriented service. If this is
true, then information and education is unlikely to change the
policies of companies that are blacklisting SB. John's suggestion
(below) seems more promising.

Perhaps a way to handle this might be to identify companies that DO
want to insure strawbale, confirm with them that they are favorable
or at least have no policy that would preclude strawbale (whether
or not they currently insure, knowingly or unknowingly, any
strawbale homes), and then list them on the site.
