IIAT's Bills of Interest for the 2023 Texas Legislature

As reported earlier this month, there were 8,191 bills filed this legislative session – a record for the most bills filed in any legislative session in recorded history. This is almost 1,000 more than last session and 400 more than 2009, which was the previous record-holder.

IIAT is tracking about 150 bills that would affect our industry in some way. IIAT's Chief Legislative Officer Lee Loftis and Government Affairs Director Regan Ellmer have been busy meeting with legislators and their staff regarding the bills that IIAT supports and those that concern us.

Bills of Interest for the 88th Texas Legislature

We’ve curated a list of 61 bills (link at end of article) that we believe are potentially the most impactful to IIAT, our members and their businesses. There are bills we support and have included a brief explanation of the legislation.

I know many of you know your state legislator well. If you are so moved, we encourage you to contact him or her to say you support those bills!

If you’d like to contact your legislator but don’t know who represents you, please contact Regan. You can also find out who represents you in the Texas House and Texas Senate here.

Remember, the relationships we have with legislators and their staff is born out of IMPACT. When we attend fundraisers for these State Representatives and State Senators during campaign season – we’re getting to know them and get to share with them what’s important to IIAT.

We’d love for you to be part of that relationship. Giving to IMPACT ensures your voice will be heard! Please visit our advocacy page to learn more. We’re actively soliciting for IMPACT now and will wrap-up the campaign at INSURCON in June.

As always, please contact Regan Ellmer, at 512.493.2454, if you’d like to learn more. He’s always excited to talk to anyone about IMPACT & the Texas Legislature!

NOTE: The Texas Ethics Commission has strict prohibitions on contributions and expenditures and forbids a corporation or labor organization from making a political contribution or political expenditure. Therefore, IIAT members wishing to make a contribution to IMPACT must do so with a personal or partnership contribution. Corporate contributions are prohibited by law.
