UPDATE ON TEXAS INSURANCE LAW
Tim Burke, Manley Burke, firstname.lastname@example.org
As reported in the September 2007 issue of Fraternal Law, last year the Texas State Legislature adopted a law that requires universities in Texas to conduct risk management training sessions for fraternities and sororities. The attendance of selected officers and advisors is mandatory.
In addition, the law requires that the Texas Department of Insurance study the insurance arrangement of fraternities and sororities.
MJ Insurance, which specializes in providing insurance coverage for women’s fraternities and sororities and, as a result, provides coverage on 39 separate college campuses in Texas, has been in contact with the Department of Insurance. MJ reports that the topics that the Department of Insurance will concentrate on include whether or not a chapter is a part of a national insurance program, is the insurance mandatory, and is the coverage provided by “admitted or non-admitted insurance companies”?
Fraternal Law will follow developments with the insurance study.
