The 2019 Texas Legislative session ended Monday, May 28, 2019 and although several significant pieces of legislation are now headed to the Governor’s desk for signing, HB 1739 is not among them. HB 1739 would have modified certain procedural requirements for UM/UIM claims and could have eased limitations related to bad faith claims asserted against insurance carriers. The bill passed the House but was not considered in the Senate. The Texas Legislature will not convene again until 2021, so attention may shift back to the Texas Supreme Court.
