With both Bills accepted and only waiting for the hearing dates in the Texas House and Senate, (hopefully in the next two weeks), at this time we need everyone to immediately contact the Committee members (House & Senate) encouraging them to support and co-sign the Bills.
We are specifically asking that CAM practitioners immediately contact the Texas House Public Health Committee and let them know of your support of the Bill and that you are in their district. This Committee has been asking us about the number of practitioners that are in their districts and whether there is true support for the Bill by alternative practitioners. So, call, fax, e-mail, and let them know that: (1) You are their constituent and an alternative health-care provider; and (2) How important the passage of this legislation is to you, your business, your patients, and your right to practice. Let them know that it will save Texas money in health-care costs. Legislative contact information is below.
Please also consider coming to the hearings in Austin to give your own personal testimony that will support the Bill. Contact the NHF if you decide to help us pass this Bill through your testimony.
If you are not a CAM practitioner, please contact both Committees (listed below). Tell them that you are their constituent, that you support the Bill, and that you want full access to natural health practitioners. This is such important legislation, so please act now.
