First Tuesdays at the Capitol

  • Alt Tag

    Legislators need to hear from you – their physician, medical
    student, and alliance constituents – to understand how
    proposed legislation can potentially impact the practice of
    medicine in Texas.

    5 Steps You Can Take To Prepare for First Tuesdays

    1. Know who represents you and
      add your legislator’s office contact information to your phone for
      easy use during the legislative session. Newly elected freshmen
      legislators will need to be contacted through their campaign
      websites until they are officially sworn in on Jan. 10, 2023.
    2. Follow TMA and your lawmakers on social media.
    3.  Download the VoterVoice app so you can respond
      to Action Alerts to impact time-sensitive legislation
      right from your phone. Look for the VoterVoice icon
      in the app store.
    4.  Bookmark these two TMA advocacy webpages for
      easy reference during session.
          including federal initiatives.
    5. Check here and stay in contact
      with your county medical society for important First Tuesdays
