Last week, I had the honor of participating in the Cover Texas Now advocacy day press conference to get the message out of the importance of covering the more than 1 million low-wage working Texans who currently have no access to private or public health insurance. Joining me were leaders from the Chambers of Commerce of San Antonio, Dallas and Oak Cliff who reiterated the message that coverage is an economic issue.
As the bill filing deadline approached, Rep. Garnet Coleman and Sen. Jose Rodriguez each introduced bills to implement a private health insurance option with principles consistent with the Texas Way.
A big thank you to all of you working in your communities to engage lawmakers and business leaders on the Texas Way. The message is being heard. Let’s keep it up.
