Texas Lawmaker Calls On Gov. Abbott To Expand COVID-19 Testing

A state lawmaker calls on Governor Abbott to expand COVID-19 testing in state-run facilities.

State Representative James Talarico wrote the Governor asking every Texas nursing home, state group homes, and state psychiatric hospital resident and staffer to have testing for COVID-19. The Governor mandated testing for nursing homes only. Talarico says that nearly five thousand vulnerable Texans live in hospitals and group homes, and some 20 thousand staffers care for them.
Talarico is a Democrat and says his letter was signed on by 63 legislators from both parties.
