DOCTOR-SENATORS EARN KEY COMMITTEE POSTS
State Sen. Bob Deuell, MD (R-Greenville), kept his spots as vice chair of the Senate Health and Human Services and State Affairs committees, and as a member of the Senate Finance Committee; rookie Sen. Charles Schwertner, MD (R-Georgetown), won a seat on Health and Human Services; and new Sen. Donna Campbell, MD (R-New Braunfels), was appointed to the Senate Education Committee. Those are the highlights for the three TMA members in the Senate as Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst made his committee appointments late last week. As previously announced, Senator Williams is the new chair of the Finance Committee, and Sen. Jane Nelson (R-Flower Mound) stays at the helm of the Health and Human Services Committee. House Speaker Joe Straus (R-San Antonio) is expected to release his committee appointments by next week.
