Statement of Platform:
I will continue to advocate for the unencumbered practice of anesthesia for Texas CRNAs. We are the free
market solution to problems of increased cost of anesthesia services and decreased access to care, but only if
current barriers to our practice are removed and new ones are prevented from being implemented. Our
opponents in organized medicine continually seek to limit our scope, prevent our ability to directly compete
with them, and reduce the practice freedoms we enjoy as a profession. I ask for your vote to continue the
important work of protecting and advancing the practice of CRNAs within Texas.
