According to the Legislative Budget Board, no significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 1225 would re-create the Chronic Kidney Disease Task Force to coordinate implementation of the state’s cost-effective plan for prevention, early screening, diagnosis, and management of chronic kidney disease for the state's population and educate health care professionals on the use of clinical practice guidelines for detecting and treating chronic kidney disease.
Texas Action opposes HB 1225 because it re-creates a task force that is outside the scope of a limited government. This type of outreach and coordination is more properly within the role of charitable organizations and the medical field.
