Subchapter K. Agents and Adjusters Continuing Education Program

28 TAC §§19.1007-19.1013

Subchapter V. Registration of Full Time Home Office Salaried Employees

28 TAC §19.3006

The Commissioner of Insurance adopts the repeal of §§19.1007 -19.1013 and 19.3006 concerning continuing education for agents, adjusters and full-time home office salaried employees. The repeal is adopted without changes to the proposal as published in the September 13, 2002 issue of the Texas Register (27 TexReg 8720) and will not be republished.

Repeal of these sections is necessary to implement legislation enacted by the 77th Legislature in Senate Bill 414. Simultaneous to this adopted repeal, the Commissioner has adopted new §§19.1007 - 19.1019 and amendments to §§19.1001 - 19.1006, which have been published elsewhere in this issue of the Texas Register

The purpose of this repeal is to remove sections that are being renumbered, reorganized, and revised to implement Senate Bill 414 and provide the maintenance of a quality continuing education system for agents, adjusters, and full-time home office salaried employees.
