84th Legislative Session Accomplishments

During the 84th Texas Legislative Session, NAIFA- Texas was a part of the passage of four pieces of legislation. Now in 2016, they are all either completely enacted or in the process of being enacted but the Texas Department of Insurance.

Our accomplishments are as follows:

1. We reduced continuing education hours from 30 to 24 every two years
2. We reduced fines for missed hours or misfiled paperwork from $1500 to $500
3. We aligned renewal dates for licenses to the agent’s birthday
4. We created a provisional license for new agents so they can begin working immediately
If you have any questions about the legislation and how it will be enacted, please reach out to Danielle Lobsinger (danielle.lobsinger@naifa-texas.org) or Tim Von Kennel (tim.vonkennel@naifa-texas.org).
