Yesterday, the Texas House of Representatives received S.B. 303 from the Texas Senate. On Thursday, the Senate passed S.B. 303 by a vote 24 to 6. The engrossed version of the bill is available here.
If enacted, S.B. 303 would improve the "futility" provisions in the Texas Advance Directive Act, most notably by adding a reporting requirement. But the bill fails to address the two most serious key fairness and procedural due process defects: (1) the lack of a neutral decision make and (2) the lack of appellate review.
