AUSTIN, TX – Today, TEXPAC, the political arm of the Texas Medical Association, and Texas Speaker Dade Phelan announced their support of state Rep. Morgan Meyer (R-Dallas) for reelection to House District 108.
TEXPAC is contributing $25,000 to Representative Meyer’s campaign, and Speaker Phelan is matching TEXPAC’s contribution for a combined total of $50,000.
“Serving as chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, Morgan Meyer is an integral member of the Texas House leadership who delivers for his constituents in Dallas County,” said Speaker Phelan. “During his time in the legislature, Morgan has worked to lower health care costs, provide access to medicine for Texans, and he will continue to fight for his district.”
“Representative Meyer has been a stalwart for medicine and for physicians across Texas,” said TEXPAC Chair Jimmy Widmer, MD. “Last session, Representative Meyer was a true champion by passing legislation preventing additional taxation on physicians and health care providers. We are more than confident he will continue to champion other issues for medicine. TEXPAC is honored to support him in his reelection to the Texas House.”
