SUBCHAPTER I. LICENSING FEES

28 TAC §19.803

1. INTRODUCTION. The Texas Department of Insurance adopts the repeal of §19.803, concerning license renewal fees for agents, adjusters, and other licensees. The repeal is adopted without changes to the proposal published in the September 14, 2007 issue of the Texas Register (32 TexReg 6042) . The Commissioner of Insurance is also adopting amendments to §§19.801 and 19.802 of this title (relating to General Provisions Regarding Licensing Fees and License Renewal and Amount of Fees) in this issue of the Texas Register. Although both adoptions concern Chapter 19, Subchapter I, of this title, this adopted repeal is not affected by the adopted amendments to §§19.801 and 19.802 of this title.

2. REASONED JUSTIFICATION. The adopted repeal is necessary to eliminate existing §19.803. That section was necessary to provide for the continuation of certain renewal fees until new fees became effective on November 1, 2002. As stated in §19.803(a), the fee structure in §19.802 applies to all licenses renewed on or after November 1, 2002. Therefore, §19.1803 has no further continuing application and, as such, is unnecessary and obsolete.

3. HOW THE SECTION WILL FUNCTION. The repeal of §19.803 will remove an unnecessary and obsolete section.

4. SUMMARY OF COMMENTS AND AGENCY'S RESPONSE. The Department did not receive any comments on the proposed repeal.

5. STATUTORY AUTHORITY. The repeal is adopted under Insurance Code §§4001.005, 4001.006, 4003.004, and 36.001. Section 4001.005 authorizes the Commissioner to adopt rules necessary to implement Insurance Code, Title 13. Section 4001.006 authorizes the Department to set and collect a nonrefundable license fees from agents licensed under the Insurance Code. Section 4003.004(a) authorizes the Department to set license renewal fees. Section 36.001 provides that the Commissioner of Insurance may adopt any rules necessary and appropriate to implement the powers and duties of the Texas Department of Insurance under the Insurance Code and other laws of the state.

6. TEXT.

§19.803. License Renewal Fees.

CERTIFICATION. This agency hereby certifies that the adopted repeal has been reviewed by legal counsel and found to be a valid exercise of the agency's legal authority.
