START A PETITION 27,000,000 members: the world's largest community for good
Apr 30, 2013

We need laboratorians or others who support quality healthcare to show up at the Texas State Capitol Rotunda this Wednesday, 5/1/13, at 9:45am. We need as many laboratorians in lab coats or scrubs to be recognized in the House and Senate. The opposition made a push against our licensure bill last week, we have to push back. If you can possibly make it to the Rotunda of the Capitol by 9:45am, please do. Dr. Christie Thompson and Dave Falleur will be there to show you where to go. Contact me at if you need a photo to recognize them.

If you cannot get to the Capitol, please call each of these Public Health Committee members:
Chairperson Lois Kolkhorst - 512-463-0060
Representative Garnet Coleman - 512-463-0524
Representative Nicole Collier - 512-463-0716
Representative Philip Cortez - 512-463-0269
Representative Sarah Davis - 512-463-0389
Representative R.D. Bobby Guerra - 512-463-0578
Representative Susan King - 512-463-0718
Representative Jodie Laubenberg - 512-463-0186
Representative J.D. Sheffield - 512-463-0628
Representative Bill Zedler - 512-463-0374

PLEASE MAKE THE CALLS on Tuesday!! It will make a difference. All you have to say is that you ask Rep.____ to support HB2297 and Licensure equates quality because it mandates certification which is optional in the state of Texas. That is it. If you want more information about the bill go to
