LOBBY AND POLITICS TEAM TAKE CLOSE LOOK AT 2012 ELECTIONS, 2013 LEGISLATURE
TMA’s lobby and TEXPAC staff spent a day with Council on Legislation Chair Gary Floyd, MD, reviewing the wins and losses from the 2011 legislative session, and taking a broad-brush look at 2012 elections and the many and significant opportunities for physicians and TEXPAC to influence the makeup of the next legislature. The team also began projecting key issues for 2013 (including scope of practice, graduate medical education funding, and Medicaid) and initiated the always-difficult exercise of setting priorities. Have ideas or suggestions? Send them my way. And if advocacy and politics are really your bag, don’t forget to register for the TMA 2011 Advocacy Retreat, Dec. 2-3, in Austin.
