Briefing on HHSC Legislative Appropriation Request

As I noted earlier, the next hearing in the state budget cycle for HIV will be on October 20. However, the HHSC will be giving a briefing on their budget request--which should include HIV--on Thursday. Here are the details:

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission will conduct a briefing on Oct. 14 to provide information about the agency's legislative appropriations request for fiscal years 2006-2007. The briefing will provide consumers, advocates, providers and others with an opportunity to learn more about the HHSC budget request. No public comment will be taken during the meeting. However, there will be an opportunity for public comment on HHSC's legislative appropriations request during a joint meeting of the Legislative Budget Board and the Governor's Office of Budget, Planning and Policy.
