Positive Update: Since posting, the Senate decided NOT to concur with the watered down House version of SB 29! No need to continue emailing the Senate asking them not to concur. Stay tuned for next steps once all of the conferees have been announced!
SB 29 by Sen. Birdwell is Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick’s priority legislation to ban COVID mandates and was passed on third reading in the House on May 23. Unfortunately, the House adopted numerous changes through substitutions and amendments which violate the medical liberty of hundreds of thousands of Texans and weaken the intent of the bill. Senator Birdwell and his fellow Senators can vote to “not concur” on – or refuse to adopt – these changes. Please help us urge the Senate to protect medical liberty for ALL Texans.
