86th Texas Legislative Session

The 86th Texas Legislature adjourned on Monday, and pharmacy emerged from the 2019 legislative session with some notable wins, some disappointing losses, and successful defensive victories. TPA’s voice was vital throughout the biennial session, which began January 8 and ended May 27. Working together, pharmacy zeroed in on about 10 business and professional issues as its collective focus. TPA took the lead on three of these issues—payment for services, collaborative practice, and enhanced pharmacist services—two of which passed. As the only Texas pharmacy organization that represents all pharmacy professionals, regardless of practice setting, TPA was extremely active and supported all pharmacy legislation that was good for the profession.

TPA's online legislative wrapup offers a full list of which bills passed, which bills failed, and which bills TPA helped to defeat. It also provides effective dates and a detailed explanation of what the legislation means for pharmacy.
