Texas State Senator Jane Nelson, R-Flower Mound, along with co-sponsors Senator Juan "Chuy" Hinojosa, D-McAllen, Senator Charles Schwertner, R-Georgetown and Senator Carlos “Charlie” Uresti, D-San Antonio, have filed SB 61 on behalf of TACC. This legislation would allow physicians who are stationed at military bases in Texas, but not licensed by the Texas Medical Board the opportunity to provide their volunteer services at our Charitable Clinics. The bill has been heard in the Health and Human Services committee on February 12th with oral testimony provided by Greater Killen Free Clinic director Marlene DiLillo, and written testimony by Faith Family Clinic Director Jim Young, and TACC.
