Opinion No. JM-746A

Re: correction of JM-746

Dear Senator Brooks:

On July 14, 1987, we issued an opinion in response to several questions you asked about the Indigent Health care and Treatment Act. V.T.C.S., art. 4438f. In that opinion we erroneously stated that the Department of Health was charged with defining required health-care services under section 1.06 of the act. It is the Department of Human Resources, not the Department of Health, that has that responsibility. We apologize for the error.

      Very truly yours,

      Rick Gilpin
      Opinion Committee
