Texas Health Care Association has named state Reps. Bryan Hughes, R-Mineola, and Travis Clardy, R-Nacogdoches, as “Champions for Long Term Care” for their efforts to help providers improve nursing home care across the state.

During this year’s regular legislative session, Hughes signed on as co-author to HB2766, which would have improved Texas nursing homes at no cost to the state by bringing in hundreds of millions of dollars in additional federal funding.

Clardy also supported the legislation, but the bill died in the Senate after overwhelmingly clearing the House with bipartisan support.
