Summary: HB 595 abolishes certain health care councils, programs, and task forces that have proliferated in Texas statute and redistributes their responsibilities and puts any savings into General Revenue. These programs have run their course and fulfilled their statutory purposes, but they remain in law drawing resources away from other important purposes.
Analysis: HB 595 limits government by abolishing programs that have become unnecessary and redistributing their resources to other parts of government. This allows agencies responsible for these programs, councils and task forces to use their resources more efficiently for purposes that are needed now. This saves taxpayer resources and ensures resources are going toward programs that Texans need, not ones that have run their course and are simply left in law. Vote “yes,” on HB 595.
