Proposed Rule Hearing Changes Not in Effect Yet

TLTA has received a number of inquiries regarding the effective date of the proposed amendments to the Basic Manual as a result of the 2008 Biennial Rule Hearing. Please note the Texas Department of Insurance published these changes with a proposed effective date of October 1, 2009, however until a final order is issued we do not know what the actual effective date will be. 

In TLTA's submitted comments, we requested TDI delay the effective date until 60 days after the final adoption to allow everyone time to comply. We anticipate a later effective date will be granted. We will notify you as soon as a final order is issued.
