For this assessment, we are going to take a look at the Texas Legislature. We are going to start with watching a video of them voting on an issue that many of you may remember, the HPV vaccine. Next, we are going to review a few of the new laws that have just taken effect for 2018. All of these were passed by the TX Legislature in our last session, which ended mid-2017.
