The Texas Pharmacy Association was at the state Capitol for the opening day of the 86th Texas Legislative Session on January 9. Stephanie Chiarello, TPA’s division director, public affairs, was there to welcome new members and discuss the Association’s legislative priorities. TPA and Dallas Area Pharmacy Association Member Melanie Smith was also in attendance and met directly with her legislators.

While there, TPA ran into former Senator Leticia Van de Putte, a TPA member who served in the legislature for many years.

It was a celebratory day in which House members unanimously elected Representative Dennis Bonnen (R-Angleton) as Speaker of the House, and Senator Kirk Watson (D-Austin) was named President Pro-Tem of the Senate.
