As if the Texas Workers' Compensation program weren't bad enough already, the Texas House has passed H.B. 2600. This bill, and the corresponding Senate bill S.B. 1476, would transform Workers' Compensation into an HMO. The Senate version is expected to come to a vote within the next two weeks.
Please write or call your Senator to oppose this bill. The FAX number for the Senate is (512) 463-0326, Attn: Your Senator.
The address for the Texas State Senate is Box 12068, Austin, TX 78711-2068.
