VISIT WITH LAWMAKERS TO BUILD RELATIONSHIPS, INFLUENCE

Over the past few weeks, I have visited with Senate Health and Human Services Committee Chair Jane Nelson (R-Lewisville), House Calendars Committee Chair Todd Hunter (R-Corpus Christi), House Public Health Committee Chair Lois Kolkhorst (R-Brenham), and other state legislators crucial to our cause in this very difficult session. I’ve found these visits to be cordial and very constructive. They allow me to build on longstanding relationships and make sure these leaders understand our positions. Please take the time now to meet with your state senator and representative, at home or here in Austin at First Tuesdays at the Capitol. It will pay off later in the year when you call and ask them to cast a critical vote for patients and physicians
