Submit Your LAR Recommendations by April 23

The 86th Regular Session of the Texas Legislature is less than a year away, and the Health and Human Services Commission is working on its next Legislative Appropriations Request. This request outlines the agency’s funding needs for the next two years and must be submitted to the Legislature by Sept. 1.

Let HHSC know what should be in the 2020-2021 LAR by submitting your ideas and recommendations to Medical_and_Social_Services@hhsc.state.tx.us. Stakeholder input is a critical element of this process.

Please include the following in your email:

  • Your name or the name of your organization and a contact person.
  • A clear, concise description of the recommendation.
  • What need would be addressed by this recommendation and the expected impact or benefit to the state or the people we serve.

The deadline for submitting recommendations is April 23. HHSC will review and consider all submissions as it develops and submits the LAR later this year.
