Advocacy

Individuals from the Independent Insurance Agents of Houston member agencies and affiliate members are invited to participate by contributing funds to support campaigns of candidates for legislative, judicial and executive branch offices of Texas.

Our statewide PAC is the largest insurance-producer political action program in Texas. We have been one of the state’s major political action organizations since the PAC was initiated in 1972. It is one of the first political action committees formed under a new law allowing their creation.

Political Offices Targeted for Contributions

  • Texas House of Representatives (150)
  • Texas Senate (31)
  • Governor
  • Lieutenant Governor
  • Attorney General
  • Comptroller
  • Members of the Texas Supreme Court (9)

Importance of IMPACT

  • Provides a necessary and important complement to the political goals and initiatives of IIAH, IIAT and our members
  • Keeps IIAH and member agencies competitive in the political arena
  • Allows IIAH members to achieve much greater political clout as a group than they could have individually.

How the IMPACT Program Works

In February each year, IIAH requests contributions from our agency members and affiliates to IMPACT:

  • Credit card contributions or personal checks from owners, producers and staff members of incorporated agencies (corporate contributions are prohibited by law)
  • Credit card contributions or agency checks or personal checks from owners, producers and staff members from unincorporated agencies
