Relating to continuing education requirements for surgical technologists.
According to the Legislative Budget Board, no fiscal impact to the state is anticipated.
SB 1239 would extend the continuing education requirements that currently apply to surgical technologists to non-certified surgical technologists (30 hours completed every two years). Also, a health care facility may restrict the abilities of a surgical technologist who does not complete the continuing education requirements. The continuing education requirements are the sole responsibility of the surgical technologists, and not their employers.
Texas Action remains neutral on SB 1239 because it does not affect our liberty principles.
