  • 85th Legislature Update

    The bill filing deadline for the 85th Session of the Texas Legislature has passed with over 6,000 bills filed. It has been a busy time for the IIAT Governmental Affairs team. IIAT has testified on a number of important bills including many of our key issues for the session. SB 10 and HB 1774, the TLR litigation reform bill, or “hail bill,” has been voted out of both the Senate Business & Commerce and House Insurance committees. Action is pending on both floors and we will continue to work with the various stakeholders supporting the common sense changes proposed. IIAT’s other key issues include SB 562 / HB 1559, our surplus lines freedom bill; SB 417 / HB 647, our notification of coverage change legislation; and SB 1283 / HB 3018, the TWIA reciprocity bill. All bills are moving through the committee process. Other bills of interest to the insurance industry this session include the “distracted driving” bill, SB 31 / HB 62, as well as a number of “balanced billing” bills in the health insurance field.
