Sunset is the regular assessment of the continuing need for a state agency or program to exist. While standard legislative oversight is concerned with agency compliance with legislative policies, Sunset starts with a more basic question: Do the agency’s functions continue to be needed?
While TWIA's governing statute says we are to be reviewed along with other state agencies in advance of the upcoming legislative session, we are not subject to being Sunset, or closed. However, the reviewers will likely be proposing legislation with recommendations related to our operations.
Working with Sunset is another opportunity for TWIA to transparently tell our story and ensure we are accomplishing our mission to provide essential property insurance products and services when no one else will.
