Silver Haired Legislature’s top priorities both controversial and practical
From ensuring seniors on Medicaid have more money to spend on personal needs to allowing authorized doctors to prescribe medical marijuana, the top priority list of the Texas Silver Haired Legislature is both controversial and practical.
The organization seeks to identify issues vital to seniors and to find state legislators willing to carry those concepts from bills to laws.
The group's most recent top 10 list shows the most urgent priorities identified recently by the group, but the list of total concerns — and potential resolutions — goes far beyond, numbering 70 in all.
Four of the top 10 priorities were crafted by Bruce Davis of Abilene, recently elected the group's deputy speaker pro tem.
