82nd Texas Legislature Testimonies and Letters

Physicians Testify at Legislative Hearings

TMA is hard at work guiding health care policy through the Texas Legislature. House and Senate committee chairs are holding legislative hearings on dramatic budget cuts, physician employment, expansion of scope, and a myriad of public health issues. At each hearing, TMA has a physician leader present to ensure legislators understand our position and act in the best interest of patients.  We are also presenting a variety of letters to state lawmakers.
