“Long term care providers in the state of Texas have a vitally important role in caring for an ever increasing aging population with complex health conditions while facing ongoing challenges in securing a stable workforce,” Kevin Warren, President and CEO of the THCA, said. “THCA member providers appreciate the legislative expertise and foundation of knowledge these incumbent legislators bring to the health policy debate and we proudly endorse their re-elections to the state legislature.”

The state legislators endorsed by the THCA PAC are:

  • Sen. Carlos Uresti, D-19, San Antonio
  • Sen. Eddie Lucio, Jr. D-27, Brownsville
