Generally Speaking
Senate Bill 304, the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners Sunset bill, passed in the Texas House of Representatives. The bill previously cleared the Senate, and now the Senate is expected to vote to concur with the House amendment to the bill. Then it will head to the Gov. Greg Abbott for his signature or veto. This bill extends the regulation of chiropractors by the TBCE until 2029, clarifies that Doctors of Chiropractic diagnose the biomechanical condition of the spine and musculoskeletal system and much more.
The 85th Texas Legislative Session is nearly over and it looks promising for the chiropractic profession. Because of the tenacity and unwavering commitment of Team TCA and our members, SB 304 has successfully passed both the Senate and House. This significant piece of legislation would extend the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners (TBCE) for another 12 years and, more importantly, affirm the right of Texas chiropractors to diagnose. Let’s celebrate this win and other victories by joining your colleagues at Chiro Texpo ’17 in Dallas.
