Yesterday’s News Release concerning the House hearing for the Texas Complementary and Alternative Health Care Services Bill stated that any supporters of HB 1716 would have to wait in order to turn in their witness cards or written testimonials supporting the Bill until the time of the hearing which is never known until our bill is actually called. That was not accurate.
We have since learned that the process is much easier and involves less of a time commitment on your part. You may show up at the hearing from 8:00 a.m. on, fill out a witness card (checking the “not testifying” block) supporting the Bill and (if you want) also a written testimonial arguing for the Bill. You then leave those with the Committee. Not having to wait around until the hearing so as to show your support is good news and will hopefully enable supporters of this important legislation to get to the Capitol tomorrow. Of course, if you are able to personally attend the hearing, then that would be even better.
Please encourage everyone to get to the Capitol tomorrow at 8:00 a.m., fill out their witness cards and submit written testimonials (if you can), so that the Committee Chair will see a hefty stack of cards supporting HB 1716.
Again, thank you to everyone who has helped this legislation get this far and hopefully passed into law.
