TDLR Asking For COVID-19 Based Changes

The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation is making preparations in case the COVID-19 pandemic continues.

The Department of Licensing and Regulation plans to ask lawmakers during the 2021 legislative session to allow telehealth as a treatment option permanently. When the pandemic shut down the state, Governor Abbott had to approve telehealth services temporarily.
Agency spokeswoman Tela Mange says before that approval came, a lot of people couldn’t get the treatment they needed. Making it a permanent option, she thinks it’ll help patients even if we’re not in a pandemic.

TDLR will also ask amendment of the Texas Open Meetings Act to allow for videoconferencing as a meeting option.
