S.B. 303 Amendment to Texas Advance Directives Act Now in Texas House

Posted Apr 20 2013 3:02pm
Yesterday, the Texas House of Representatives received S.B. 303 from the Texas Senate.  On Thursday, the Senate passed S.B. 303 by a vote 24 to 6.  The engrossed version of the bill is available here .  

If enacted, S.B. 303 would improve the "futility" provisions in the Texas Advance Directive Act, most notably by adding a reporting requirement.  But the bill fails to address the two most serious key fairness and procedural due process defects:  (1) the lack of a neutral decision make and (2) the lack of appellate review.
