Local governments need options to the insurance market. Unexpected fluctuations in pricing and coverage can place an undue burden on public funds and impede the ability of cities and other local governments to plan for the future of their communities.

The Pool's goals are to help members with these objectives:
  • Protections against unforeseen financial loss resulting from workers' compensation, property, and liability claims
  • Provide a stable risk financing system
  • Education with an emphasis on reducing risk and controlling losses
  • Timely claims handling and effective legal defense

TMLIRP is governed by a Board of Trustees elected by members who understand these needs. Public officials, as well as three citizen members, can serve on the Board. The Trustees have created programs that are tailored to the risks faced by Texas governments. Pooling has proven to be the most effective and efficient means to insulate members from the ups and downs of the open market.
