DR. SCHWERTNER NAMED SENATE HEALTH COMMITTEE CHAIR
With Senator Nelson’s reassignment to chair the Senate Finance Committee, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst appointed Sen.

We’re still checking the legislative archives, but our best information says Senator Schwertner is the first physician to chair that critical committee.
