Expansion of Adjunct Health Coverage

San Antonio AllianceUncategorized

HB  2127 by Rep. Donna Howard (D-Austin), a bill to expand access to state  health coverage for adjunct faculty at institutions of higher education,  was passed by the Senate State Affairs Committee today without  amendment on a bipartisan vote, with only one dissent (by Sen. Robert  Nichols, R-Jacksonville). The bill now needs to be placed on the agenda  for the full Senate. You can help encourage a fast vote on the bill in  the full Senate by sending a new letter from the Texas AFT Web site.
