Agency History

The Board of Insurance regulates the state's insurance and fire prevention industries primarily under the provisions of the Texas Insurance Code, the basic objectives of which are to ensure the financial soundness of the insurance industry and to protect the insurance consumer. The board determines agency policy, sets rules, promulgates and approves rates in certain property/casualty lines of insurance, hears appeals of administrative rulings, and enforces statutory mandates. The board appoints, with the consent of the senate, the commissioner of insurance, who acts as the executive and administrative officer of the agency. The commissioner of insurance oversees four specialized units and four broad programs. Three of the specialized units are (1) Hearings, which conducts formal administrative hearings; (2) Conservation, which attempts to rehabilitate and conserve insurance entities with impaired financial conditions; and (3) Liquidation, which operates under court order to liquidate insolvent companies. The agency's four broad programs are the Regulated Lines and Licensing Program, the Financial Program, the Compliance Program and the Administrative Services Program. Regulated Lines and Licensing, with its property, casualty, life, and licensing sections, has jurisdiction for most of the statutory filings processed by the board. The Financial Program is responsible for monitoring the solvency and business affairs of insurance companies licensed in Texas. The Compliance Program enforces state law regarding unfair trade practices and unfair competition by an insurer or its representatives. The Administrative Services Program includes all of the agency's administrative and support activities.

Scope and Contents of the Records

These records consist of board orders issued by the Board of Insurance Commissioners/State Board of Insurance from 1927 to 1981 and from 1989 to 1993, under the following designations: minutes (1927-1934), official minute of meeting (1934-1950), minute of official action (1950-1957), and record of official action (1957-1981 and 1991-1993). Since 1934, the board has used standardized summary sheets indicating date, subject considered, general remarks and action taken, and signatures of members of the board issuing the order. Attachments frequently accompany the orders. Examples of the subjects of board actions include the following: certificates of authority, and their renewal; complaints against insurance companies, and cancellation of licenses; reinsurance; rate deviations; general liability insurance rate applications; excess liability insurance filings; excess of loss; the Texas Catastrophe Property Insurance Pool Act (CATPOOL) and appeals of orders from the Texas Catastrophe Property Insurance Association (TCPIA); applications for authority to pay dividends; auto insurance extended coverage and unclassified risks; auto insurance consent to rate (greater than rates fixed by the board); revision of manuals; proposal and adoption of rules.

To prepare this inventory, the described materials were cursorily reviewed to delineate series, to confirm the accuracy of contents lists, to provide an estimate of dates covered, and to determine record types.

Arrangement of the Records

Arrangement is chronological and also numerical. From June 1927 through December 1932, no order numbers were assigned. Between January 1933 and February 1957, orders were numbered consecutively within each year (e.g., 33-001 was the first order in 1933, 57-027 the 27th order in 1957). In March 1957, with the transition from the Board of Insurance Commissioners to the State Board of Insurance, a new consecutive numbering order was begun, omitting any notation of the year (e.g., 00001 through 60596). The inventory gives the first and last board order number followed by the first and last date in each box or microfilm reel.
