News Bite: 1) Dr. Michael P. Henry of Austin has been appointed to the TBCE.  He will serve until 2019.

2) The TBCE HAS voted to appeal the TMA v. TBCE lawsuit recently decided by Judge Rhonda Hurley.  The appeal will be filed before Jan. 17, 2017.  Should TMA prevail, the certification to perform VONT would be repealed, the definition of "musculoskeletal system" would not include "nerves", "nerves" would also have to be removed from the definition of "subluxation complex," and DCs would not be able to render a "diagnosis"  but rather only an examination, evaluation and analysis of a muscle or skeletal condition that does not pertain to nerves.

Sunset Staff Recommends TBCE Consolidation with Other Licensing Agencies

News Bite:  The Sunset Commission Staff recommends that the TBCE and eight other health agencies be consolidated into the Health Professions Division of the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation.  The report notes that “when these small agencies become involved in litigation, ... the agencies typically do not have money in their operating budget or extra staff to help in case litigation."  The Chiropractors, Optometrists, and Podiatrists would be consolidated in phase two to be completed by the end of August 2019.

Each health profession would have a governor-appointed advisory board responsible for development of all practice-related rules.  The all-public member TDLR Commission would consider these practice-related rules for final approval and could adopt, or return the rules to the advisory board, but could not amend them.  With the programs scheduled to transfer from DSHS by 2019, TDLR will oversee 38 licensing programs with more than 168 license types and about 700,000 licensees.
