Legislative Report: April 20, 2017
Thursday, April 20, 2017 03:59 PM

By: Kaden Norton

On April 12th, House Bill 3024 by Rep. Four Price (House District 87 - Amarillo) was voted out of the House Public Education Committee by an 8-0 margin. The bill, which would permit a Doctor of Chiropractic to remove a student-athlete from a UIL athletic activity if the student-athlete is suspected of having sustained a concussion, has been sent to the House Calendars Committee. The House Calendars Committee will determine when HB3024 is scheduled for a vote by the entire Texas House of Representatives.

House Bill 1649 by Rep. Sergio Munoz (House District 36 - Mission) prohibits health insurers from using extrapolation in insurance claims audits. The bill passed the Texas House Insurance Committee on April 18th by a 7-2 margin. TCA members Dr. Don White and Dr. Paul Liechty testified in support of the bill. It too will be sent to the House Calendars Committee to be scheduled for a vote by the House of Representatives.

On April 24th, House Bill 3206 by Rep. Phil Stephenson (House District 85 - Wharton) will be considered in the House Committee on Licensing and Administrative Procedures. The bill authorizes a Doctor of Chiropractic to serve on the Combative Sports Advisory Board at the Department of Licensing and Regulation.
