A few weeks ago we sent you a request from TDI asking for input from stakeholders on developing rules to implement HB 290 passed in the last legislative session. I have attached another copy of that request.
TABA has drafted a reply to TDI outlining our concerns about the bill and the negative effect it would have on ERISA plans in Texas and the shift of ERISA regulation to the
State. I have included a copy of our response below. After reading our response, if you share our concern, please email your support of TABA‘s response to Dave Wheelus at HMAS@tdi.texas.gov.
The deadline for your response is Wednesday, September 20th.
