In its final report of year, House State Affairs takes HHSC to task over DNR

Lawmakers say law was improperly implemented, questioning whether the agency “gave heavy consideration to a highly problematic letter that sought to go beyond the bounds of the law” – a letter from Texas Right to Life

The final interim report released by the Texas House State Affairs Committee of this year puts the Health and Human Services Commission under higher scrutiny after its handling of a rule regarding issues of end of life.

The result of a contentious September 6 hearing, the 42-page document highlights the complicated journey of Senate Bill 11, authored by Sen. Charles Perry, R Lubbock, and sponsored by Rep. Greg Bonnen, R Friendswood. There was no immediate comment on the report from the agency.
