In a 9-3 vote, the Sunset Commission today voted to maintain the Texas Department of Savings & Mortgage Lending as a stand alone agency as it currently exists. This is thanks in large part to the grassroots support and strategic work of the Texas Land Developers Association and their lobbyist, Chuck Rice.
After months of monitoring the issue, targeting key members of the commission and reaching out via letters and emails, the Commission sided with TLDA and stakeholders to keep the agency in tact rather than collapsing it under the Department of Banking. Congratulations to the agency, and to our members for a successful win leading into the legislative session. This sets the stage for more victories for our industry and further strengthens our relationship with the agency and policy makers. Thank you for your continued support and assistance on this important task.
