Ask Governor Abbott to Sign These Bills
Give Gov. Greg Abbott’s office a call this week at (512) 463-2000 and urge the governor to put his signature on these bills: Senate Bill 97 — e-cigarette regulation; Senate Bill 359 — allowing a four-hour emergency department hold for mentally ill patients; House Bill 1945 — removing restrictions on direct contracting for primary care; and Senate Bill 66 — on unassigned epinephrine autoinjectors in public schools. These four TMA-backed bills have made it all the way through the Texas Legislature this session and deserve to be signed into law.
