TWIA Petition

By | News

We, the residents and property owners of the 14 coastal counties of Texas, petition the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association (TWIA) Board of Directors, the Texas Commissioner of Insurance, members of the Texas State Legislature, and Governor Abbott to oppose rate increases for TWIA policyholders. It is insensitive and unnecessarily cruel to dump a significant premium rate increase on these policyholders while they continue to rebuild their lives. TWIA must explore any and all possible alternatives to a premium rate increase given the gravity of economic conditions in Hurricane Harvey impacted communities. Therefore, we the undersigned, call on the TWIA Board of Directors, the Texas Commissioner of Insurance, members of the Texas State Legislature, and Governor Abbott to recognize the plight of coastal residents and not impose a rate increase on TWIA policy holders.
