EXEMPT FILING NOTIFICATION PURSUANT TO THE INSURANCE CODE

CHAPTER 5, SUBCHAPTER L, ARTICLE 5.96

Notice is given that the Commissioner of Insurance will consider a petition filed by the staff that requests amendments to the Texas Addendum to the Fire Suppression Rating Schedule (Texas Addendum) which would change the storage of the safety education and exit drills reports and grammatically changes a sentence pertaining to the mandated frequency of fire drills.

A public hearing on this matter will not be held unless a separate request for a hearing is submitted to the Office of the Chief Clerk during the comment period as defined herein.

The proposed amendments require school districts to keep their Fire Safety Education and Exit Drill reports and make them available upon request. Additionally, for ease in readability, a grammatical change was made to the sentence that pertains to the frequency of mandatory fire drills.

A copy of the petition, including the exhibit with the full text of the proposed amendments to the Texas Addendum, is available for review in the office of the Chief Clerk of the Texas Department of Insurance, 333 Guadalupe Street, Austin, Texas. For further information or to request copies of the petition, please contact Sylvia Gutierrez at (512) 463-6327; refer to (Ref. No. F-1103-24-I).
