Grassroots Action Center

Help us reinforce local connections with state and federal legislators.

Maintaining relationships with your legislators and statewide officials is crucial and helps IIAT get important information directly to the source.

“Independent agents understand the insurance needs of Texas consumers and their own communities. As a state legislator, I value the expertise and appreciate the feedback of IIAT’s members when making policy decisions.“ Senator Larry Taylor, Texas State Senate District 11
