Breaking News from tsata


I wanted to take this time to applaud the efforts you have made to be heard on the Sunset Commission's pending decision regarding the Licensed Athletic Trainer in Texas.  Your participation has been noticed by the committee.

David Weir and I personally testified before the commission members this past Wednesday.  Our efforts were well received, and a sub-committee is being formed to offer us a satisfactory solution to our concerns. 

Our Executive Director, Spanky Stephens, was at the state capitol today meeting with members of the commission and the newly formed sub-committee.  We are pleased with efforts that have been made, and continue to be supported by David Anderson of Hillco Partners on this issue. 

Moving forward, there will be some time that passes before new information is known.  We ask that you continue to be an advocate for the Advisory Board, while at the same time refraining from any further email or phone correspondence with commission or committee members as they work towards a solution.  

We feel confident that our voices have been heard, and we will alert you as soon as we have new developments that require your attention and participation.  Thank you for representing us well!
