The 86th Texas Legislature convenes next month. Throughout the 2019 legislative session, state lawmakers will file and pass countless bills that will affect Texas hospitals’ funding and operations. The involvement and voice of every Texas hospital leader will be critical during this pivotal time.
At the August board meeting, we heard requests for more timely updates and resources to help Texas health care leaders support and protect hospitals’ policy priorities. In response to this popular demand, we created the THA 86th Legislative Session app, designed to help hospital leaders engage and stay up-to-date during the upcoming session.
The app makes it easy to:
- Contact your lawmaker to support or oppose a bill.
- Quickly access resources relevant to the legislative session, including THA’s policy priorities, position papers, videos and other web content and messaging.
- Connect with THA via social media.
- Make personal contributions to THA’s political action committee HOSPAC.
With push notifications turned on, hospital leaders will never miss an important update or an opportunity to take action on legislation affecting Texas hospitals.
Stay connected during the 86th Legislative Session by downloading THA’s newest app to your IOS or Android device. Just search “THA Legislative Session App” in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Additional information about the app is available from www.tha.org/legislativeapp.
