Legislative Update

Special Session off to a fast start


Last Tuesday, July 18, members of the Texas House and Senate returned back to work in Austin for the first called Special Session of the 85th Legislative Session to tackle a number of items on the Governor’s agenda.   At the top of the agenda is the Sunset legislation, which would provide for the continuance of state agencies that were under sunset review during the 85th Regular Session, one of which, is the Texas Medical Board (TMB).  The Senate passed its sunset legislation after midnight on July 20.  The full House is expected to take action on sunset legislation in the coming week.
