2023 Rulemaking Hearing


On May 14, 2024 the Texas Department of Insurance published a proposal to update, correct and clarify rules and forms in the Basic Manual. After a public comment period that ends July 1, a final adoption order will be issued with a Nov. 1 effective date. On Dec. 21, 2023 Texas Department of Insurance Commissioner Brown issued a formal order approving the exhibits containing a proposal to update, correct and clarify rules and forms in the Basic Manual. This order does not address the Basic Premium Rate, which is being addressed at TDI under a separate proceeding.

The rules and endorsement rate adjustments proposed by TLTA during this process were generated by TLTA's Regulatory Committee and approved by TLTA's Board of Directors following many years of work. Our proposed rule package contained several improvements to current procedural rules, a modernization of certain fees, new endorsements, and plain language rewrites.
