Relating to the definition of first responder for immunization purposes.
According to the Legislative Budget Board, no fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 1579 would include uninsured members of the state military forces within the definition of "first responder" for purposes of statutory provisions relating to immunizations provided by the Department of State Health Services. This would allow uninsured members of the state military forces to be provided free immunizations by DSHS as they do for other first responders.
Texas Action is neutral on HB 1579 because it does not significantly affect our liberty principles.
