The Treasury on Thursday granted preliminary approval for several of the nation's largest insurance companies to receive capital infusions under the government's Troubled Assets Relief Program, a Treasury spokesperson said. The recipients include Hartford, Prudential, Lincoln National, and Principal Financial Group, the official said.

Few of these involved in the Gulf - but this preps the way for reform on the insurance front which will probably be a boon to insurers and a shaft for homeowners.
