CONTACT YOUR SENATOR TODAY TO STOP BAD CHIRO BILL
A dangerously bad bill is moving. It must be stopped before it gets on the Senate floor. Senate Bill 1001 by Sen. John Carona (R-Dallas) would let the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners write any rule, make any expansion — and go virtually unchallenged by any other state licensing agency. Chiropractors could do whatever they want. And bill for it. No restrictions. Ask your senator for a firm commitment to stop this bill. The Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners has a terrible track record, repeatedly voting to allow chiropractors to conduct dangerous tests and procedures they cannot safely perform given their education, skills, and training. Please call your state senator today or use the TMA Grassroots Action Center to send an easy e-mail. Ask your senator to block SB 1001 from coming up for consideration on the Senate floor.
