CDI Is Great, But Don’t Forget the PAC

Election Day is November 6. Even though there’s no presidential race in 2018, this election season is pivotal to all Texans and, more specifically, to Texas chiropractors.

With the Texas Chiropractic Association leading the charge, a record four pro-chiropractic bills were signed into law during the 2017 Texas Legislative Session. The next session, in 2019, will be even more pivotal for the future of the chiropractic profession in the Lone Star State.

TCA is already hard at work finalizing our legislative agenda, with the goal of authoring bills that will advance chiropractic and build on the momentum we’ve created. But it takes friends to get things done, elected officials who are willing to sponsor our bills and flex their political muscle for chiropractic.

That’s where the TCA Political Action Committee (TCA PAC) becomes critically important. The TCA PAC works to raise funds and make contributions to worthy candidates.

Medical Physicians Want More Control Over "Social Landscape"

Medical news reporting reports that in mid-June the annual meeting of the American Medical Association's (AMA) house of delegates asserted that physicians should take more control over a changing healthcare and social landscape as the governing body took positions on everything from drug prices and mental healthcare, to gun violence and LGBTQ inclusion in the medical field.

Here are 10 highlights reported by one source:

  • The AMA came out with its most aggressive position yet on "gun violence."  Delegates adopted nearly a dozen policy changes including supporting a ban on assault weapons, registration of all firearms, legislation that would keep guns out of the hands of those convicted of domestic violence, and the raising the legal age to buy guns to 21. The measures received overwhelming support, including a 446-99 vote in favor of the assault weapons ban. 
  •  Now, AMA represented physicians hold that physician assisted suicided is compatible with the role of "healer."  Fifty-six percent of the AMA delegates voted against maintaining its position that "physician-assisted suicide is fundamentally incompatible with the physician's role as healer."

Since 2001, a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization that helps raise funds for the less fortunate, has been serving humanity for the greater good.   The purpose of this organization is to serve the suffering, and help provide a better standard of living with the use of natural, preventative chiropractic care as well as raising funds for food, shelter, clothing and other basic needs.  They raise tax-deductible funds for the people they serve.  

ChiroMission seeks to promote Chiropractic throughout the world, and to adjust those who are subluxated and in need of neuromusculoskeletal care, especially in third world countries where resources are limited.  “It is our intention to cultivate students of  Chiropractic  from these deprived areas so that they may return to their beloved countries and work in offices established by ChiroMission, Inc.,” the organization asserts.  They continue, “since 2001 we have brought more education, introduced chiropractic care and have been a channel for hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations and several tons of basic needs for the less fortunate.”

TBCE Adopts March 2018 Proposed Rules Changes
Written by Editor   
Tuesday, June 19, 2018 07:10 AM

In March of 2018 the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners (TBCE)  published proposed rules changes as reported here.  On June 19, 2018, those reported changes were adopted by the TBCE.  

Rules effected are rule 78.3 Rules of Practice;  rule 78.5 Duty to Respond to Complaint and Request for Information or Records; rule 78.7 Public Interest Information; and rule 78.8 Complaint Procedures.

The currently adopted rules may be found at the above links. These rules were deemed necessary to reflect implementation of 2017 Sunset Commission legislation, SB 304, which dissolved the Board’s statutory requirement to regulate and/or register chiropractic facilities, effective September 1, 2017. The purpose of the amendments is to remove the reference of regulation of facilities and facility owners stated in the rule.
