GOVERNOR PERRY REAPPOINTS AS A PAIR OF STATE HEALTH CARE LEADERS
Gov. Rick Perry has signed Commissioner Suehs and Workers’ Compensation Commissioner Rod Bordelon to another two-year term in office. TMA has excellent working relationships with both men. Commissioners Suehs has served as executive commissioner of the Health and Human Services Commission since September 2009, where he has overseen the state’s five health and human services agencies, including more than 55,000 employees and combined annual budgets of more than $30 billion. Commissioner Bordelon heads the Texas Department of Insurance Division of Workers’ Compensation, which regulates the workers’ compensation system in Texas, ensuring that injured workers receive the necessary benefits to return to work quickly, and that workers’ compensation costs are kept at a reasonable level for Texas employers.
