The Texas Orthopaedic Association will speak in support of Rep. Bobby Guerra’s legislation – HB 2299 – which would protect out-of-state team physicians when they travel with their teams to Texas. The bill would direct the Texas Medical Board to recognize the out-of-state licenses for those physicians while they are assisting their teams for competitions in Texas.

The Texas Medical Board passed a similar rule in the summer of 2019.

Dozens of other states have already passed similar laws.  Click here for more.
