TNP Legislative Update #4

TNP Legislative Update #4

As I have noted before, things are moving at breakneck speed this legislative session. Just this Wednesday, Senator Jane Nelson filed SB SB 406.  The bill has been referred to committee and is scheduled for hearing on February 12, 2013 at 9:00 a.m.  Time flies when you’re having fun. If you want to listen live to the hearing next Tuesday, you can do so by going to the Senate Broadcast page  http://www.senate.state.tx.us/75r/Senate/Events.htm   If you are unable to listen live, all hearings are archived and available and can be found through the link above.

Another piece of news is that Representative Lois Kolkhorst, chair of the House Public Health Committee has filed the companion to SB 406.  That bill number is HB 1055.  While only one bill will pass, having two protects us in case the first one gets hung up during the legislative process.

Things look to be moving quickly for us this session so watch your email inbox as we will be sending updates and alerts, often asking that you call or email your legislator to ask for support.   This upcoming week is a big one for us.  Keep your fingers crossed!
