There was a full page ad from Farmer's in our paper today, apologizing for the pull-out, and making sure everyone knew it was because they couldn't work things out with the Texas Department of Insurance. They stated, "We simply cannot allow the state to force our customers to accept the financial instability that would come from conducting homeowners business in an unsound manner."
They also say, "Most companies have simply withdrawn from or severly restricted their homeowners business in Texas." I'll admit I'm not keeping up with this to a great degree, but I haven't noticed anything like that, have any of you? My company certainly hasn't said anything like that to me.
Opinions my own.
