AUSTIN (API — Texas Insurance Commissioner Elton Bottier will continue to hear testimony today on proposed rate rollbacks that would save consumers same $520 million less than previously estimated.
Consumers advocates and insurance companies are giving the commissioner their opinions on the recommended rollbacks that Bomer's staff unveiled Wednesday during the first of two days of public hearings.
The reductions are required by the 1995 Texas Legislature, which approved a bill in May requiring insurance companies to pass on to customers the savings they reap from sweeping reforms of the civil justice system.
The insurance department initially estimated the new law w ould save con-
Morales: Transits, employers may ban the carrying of guns
AUSTIN (.AP) — Just days before the state's concealed-handgun law takes effect, Texas Attorney General Dan Morales has ruled that transit authorities and businesses may ban the carrying of guns.
Morales also said that counties may prohibit concealed handguns within county parks, but anes cannot do the same within city parks.
The concealed-handgun law goes into effect Fnday. At that time. Texans may begin applying for handgun permits, which won’t be valid until Jan. 1,1996.
Morales’ legal opinions, issued W’ednesdav, were requested by state Sea Rodney Ellis and state Rep. Ron Wilson, both Houston Democrats Wilson wats a co-author of the conceal ed-gun legislation; Ellis opposed the bill.
Wilson, who requested the opinion regarding transit authonties and parks, said the rulings “clear up die main concerns that people had” about the law.
‘My own personal opinion is that they ought to be able to carry them on buses.’
— Rep. Ron Wilson
“There were a number of questions out there." he said. “I agree with at least most of what (Morales) has opined.” But Sea Jerry Pattersoa the law's chief author, called the rulings “much ado about nothing.”
“No matter w hat a metro does, or no matter what a county does, anyone
who has a permit to carry a concealed handgun and goes aboard a metro bus ot in a county park has not violated a state law — period,” said Patterson, R-Pasadena.
“Only if they’re told to leave, then they’re in violation of trespassing — a misdemeanor offense.” he said.
Wilson sought the ruling on public transportation after the Houston Metropolitan Transit Authority said it would ban the carrying of concealed guns on its buses.
“My own personal opinion is that they ought to be able to carry them on buses, but that is not the law as we wrote it,” he said. “It may work out for the best. If it doesn’t, we’ll go back and address it.”
Billy Burge, chairman of the Houston Metro board, praised Morales’ ruling.
