Representative Flynn Passes Multiple Bills

Respresentative Dan Flynn

Texas Insider
Report: AUSTIN, Texas –
After a busy and prolific session on the floor,
Representative Dan Flynn passed today six bills from his legislative package.
These bills included: SB 601, which
helps the Texas Veterans Commission better do its intended mission; SB 822, to aid with the administration
of a grant program to support community mental health programs for veterans and
their families; HB 1326, which
continues the Texas Military Department; HB
1535
, which continues the State Securities Board, and SB 1821 to improve regulation over perpetual care cemeteries.

Lastly, SB 1236,
which passed unanimously through the House, empowers Hunt Regional Healthcare
to more competitively recruit and retain physician staff.

As the healthcare
marketplace becomes increasingly complex, more and more physicians are seeking
employment opportunities outside of independent practice. Hunt Regional
Healthcare representatives, including CEO Richard Carter, worked with Chairman
Flynn to produce HB 1227/ SB 1236 which
moves the hospital to a direct employment model. By directly employing
physicians, the hospital will be able to reduce costly benefits and better
attract and maintain physician staff. As the only hospital in Hunt County, it
is imperative that Hunt Regional Healthcare has every tool available to offer
the best possible quality of medical services to House District Two. The bill
will now be sent to the Governor to sign, after which it will become law.

SB 1236 ensures
Hunt Regional Healthcare is able to successfully provide top medical and
hospital care for the residents of Hunt County. The direct employment model
utilized by many Texas hospitals will enable these efforts. Hunt Regional
Healthcare has provided quality services to Hunt
County
for over 40 years, and this bill helps the hospital continue this
mission.”
