Senate Bill 809 / Rider 143 Ongoing Monthly Report

On March 13, 2020, President Donald Trump issued Proclamation 9994 declaring a national emergency due to the Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) outbreak. Governor Greg Abbott also declared a state of disaster in all Texas counties due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The 87th Texas Legislature directed the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) to collect information from Health Care Institutions (as defined in Senate Bill 809, 87th Legislature) regarding COVID-19-related Federal Funds. HHSC must report this information to the Governor, Legislative Budget Board, and any appropriate standing committee in the Legislature in writing on a quarterly basis. The Legislature's directive to HHSC is in Senate Bill 809 (87th Legislature, Regular Session) and the General Appropriations Act (Senate Bill 1, 87th Legislature, Article II (Health and Human Services Commission) Rider 143).
