TDI Issues Call for Rule Updates
The Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) is accepting submissions to identify Texas rules that should be changed or modernized. The initiative was announced earlier this year.
As part of the review, stakeholders are asked to submit a brief statement on each rule they’re requesting to change or update. TDI will review the submissions and announce the selection of a limited number of rule proposals for detailed review and comment. TDI will request additional information for these submissions, such as suggested text revisions. After review, TDI will determine which submissions will move forward to formal rule projects. These rules will progress through TDI’s normal rule process, which allows opportunity for public comment.
Submissions should include the specific rule being commented upon, why the rule should be reviewed or revised, the issue the rule causes and why it should be a priority for TDI, and a brief description of how the rule could be improved. Submissions must be received by October 1, 2019.
More information can be found on the TDI website.
