Agency History

The Texas Savings and Loan Department was created as a separate state agency in 1961 by the 67th Legislature, House Bill 91 for the purpose of regulating the savings and loan industry in Texas. The policymaking body of the department is the nine-member Finance Commission of Texas, appointed by the governor with concurrance of the senate for overlapping six-year terms. The Finance Commission is primarily responsible for the administration of the Banking Department, Consumer Credit Commission, and Savings and Loan Department. The Finance Commission appoints the commissioners of the respective departments, approves the budget of the Texas Savings and Loan Department, and with the savings and loan commissioner, promulgates the rules for the department. The Savings and Loan Department, operating under the policies and supervision of the Finance Commission, is responsible for approving applications for state-chartered savings and loans, examining all state-chartered savings and loan associations, and monitoring those associations with problems.

Prior to 1913, Texas savings and loan associations were chartered by special acts of the legislature but were not regulated separately from other corporations. In 1913, the legislature required the incorporation and regulation of associations, and it placed them under the commissioner of insurance and banking. In 1923, the legislature separated the Department of Banking from the Department of Insurance and Banking. In 1929, the legislature revised the Texas savings and loan laws and placed the regulation of savings and loan associations under the control of the Department of Banking. The Department of Banking retained this regulatory control until the Savings and Loan Department of Texas was created in 1961 and placed under the administrative control of the Finance Commission.
