Presumptive Speaker Phelan issues statement on requirement for COVID testing on opening day

"Less than 24 hours before the start of the legislative session, DPS instructed the State Preservation Board to require COVID-19 testing on opening day. The Texas House will require testing for guests, media, and staff entering the chamber. That is the only testing we will require, as we’ve said all along. Each member will decide how they run their office and the protocols governing their office for the remainder of the session. This remains the People’s House, and I look forward to creating more, not less, opportunities for Texans to make their voice heard during the 87th legislative session."
