Texas Special Legislative Session to Narrow DNR Orders

Last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced a legislative special session that will begin on July 18th, 2017.

Among the items included on the special session call is “strengthening patient protections relating to do-not-resuscitate orders.” This is presumably a reference to H.B. 2063 supported by Texas Right to Life.
