Earlier this week, I joined a bipartisan coalition of State Senators and Representatives calling for the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) to implement rules for family visitation at nursing homes and senior care facilities.

For months now, I have been calling for an end to the shut down and restoring the freedom of senior center residents to visit with friends and loved ones.

It is crucial the HHSC know that Texans want to be able to visit their families and are willing to take the necessary steps to do so!
