“The Texas Senate today voted to strengthen protections for Texans against bad actors who exploit families and businesses after severe weather,” TLR Communications Director Lucy Nashed said. “By passing House Bill 1774 to third reading, the Senate is helping put a stop to abusive lawsuits that are jeopardizing the affordability and availability of property insurance across the state, and ensuring Texas policyholders will continue to have the strongest consumer protections in the nation against insurers who unfairly deny and delay claims.”
