Rick Perry Visits a Tyler Home to Discuss Skyrocketing Homeowner Insurance Rates

Governor Rick Perry was in Tyler Friday.

He's traveling across the state telling Texans he plans to fix escalating homeowner's insurance premiums.

The Governor told guests at a Tyler home that he hopes to start regulating homeowner's insurance.  He also wants to end manipulative credit review practices used by some companies.

He says the problem lies with a few insurance companies who are ruling the majority of the market. And, that more options will mean Texans will have more control over what they pay for insurance.
