Relating to the physician education loan repayment program.
Estimated Two-year Net Impact to General Revenue Related Funds for HB 2261, As Introduced: an impact of $0 through the biennium ending August 31, 2021.
The bill would make no appropriation but could provide the legal basis for an appropriation of funds to implement the provisions of the bill.
HB 2261 would increase the amount of money a physician can receive per year from the physician education loan repayment program.
Texas Action recommends opposing HB 2261 because it violates our principle of limited government. Increasing payments of loan repayment programs drains the state of funds, increasing debt and the tax burden on taxpayers. It is not the proper role of the state to use taxpayer money to reimburse physicians for their student loans.
