Texas Advance Directives Act – Five New Bills

As of a few days ago, there were just two bills proposing amendments to the Texas Advance Directives Act.  Now there are seven.  

In the past two days, the following were introduced:  H.B.1444 (King); H.B.1455 (Kilck); H.B.1464 (Hughes); H.B.1539 (Perry); and S.B. 675 (Hancock).  The Hughes and Perry bills, on a quick first read, appear to be the most dramatic limitations or eliminations of clinicians’ current right to refuse life-sustaining treatment.
