So, one of the "Big Two" is discontinuing professional liabilty insurance for 
Architects and Engineers.  IIRC, this firm was created in the early 70's to 
provide competitive rates as an alternative to *the* big carrier, CNA/Victor 
O. Schinerer.  Does this mean that E&O rates for small structural firms will 
once again touch the 12 to 15 percent of gross annual billings as it once did?

Good Luck!
