Texans pay their insurance premiums each month in exchange for a promise that their premiums will be payed in full and on time. Unfortunately, bureaucrats have allowed insurance companies to abuse their customers in ways that increase their bottom line. Over the past decade, these companies have carved up their policies, offering less coverage, while continuing to raise premiums. As a result, many Texans are paying too much for policies that cover too little. Without meaningful reform, insurance companies in Texas will continue to “Delay, Deny, and Defend” claims knowing that everyday Texans don’t have the time and legal resources to fight it. 

HB1774: See How They Voted

Texas lawmakers made the unfortunate decision to pass HB 1774, more aptly referred to as the Blue Tarp Bill because it will make it more difficult for Texans to rebuild after disaster strikes. Find out if your lawmaker voted for this dangerous legislation.
