AUSTIN – Director of the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s (TPPF) Center for Health Care Policy John Davidson will testify before the Texas Senate Health and Human Services Committee TOMORROW, Wednesday, February 25, at 1:30 p.m. CST in the Senate Chamber of Texas State Capitol. Davidson will testify in favor of SB 219, which relates to the provision of health and human services in Texas, including the powers and duties of the Health and Human Services Commission and other state agencies.
“There’s no question, this is a big bill, addressing substantial inconsistencies reaching across nine codes and 262 chapters of state law. But this bill, unlike other Sunset bills that will follow, makes no changes in policy,” said Davidson. “The last Sunset Review of health and human services was 16 years ago, and a code clarification bill is long overdue. If lawmakers want to accomplish structural reform of health and human services through the Sunset Review process, they should do so with clean statutory language.”
