The Texas Chiropractic Association (TCA) has joined the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners (TBCE) and a filed a petition for review with the Supreme Court of Texas. Both TCA and TBCE are seeking to overturn a decision by the Third Court of Appeals in TBCE & TCA v. TMA, which threatens the future of chiropractic in Texas. Read TCA's petition for review and TBCE's petition for review.

Both the District Court in Travis County and the Third Court of Appeals in Austin previously ruled in favor of the Texas Medical Association (TMA), which successfully challenged rules adopted by TBCE regarding the lawful scope of practice for Texas chiropractors. TCA has been involved in what many have called the “VONT lawsuit.”

February was a short month, but it didn’t feel that way. TCA was hard at work putting on TCA Legislative Day and the Texas Chiropractic Legislative Conference while, at the same time, conducting the business of chiropractic during the 86th Texas Legislative Session.

For those you who made the trip to Austin for TCA Legislative Day, thank you! Our theme was “Show Your Love for Chiropractic!” and you did, big-time. In all, 500+ chiropractors, students and faculty from Parker University and Texas Chiropractic College, staff and chiropractic supporters joined us at the Capitol. Not a bad turnout for Valentine’s Day!

But TCA Legislative Day wasn’t just about numbers. The quality of the 165+ meetings was outstanding and, because of your connections, we were able to educate legislators about chiropractic and generate valuable support for pro-chiropractic legislation. Since then, we’ve been able to lock down sponsors for nearly all of bills. Stay tuned for updates in the coming weeks!
