TOTA employs a legislative representative and an OT lobbyist to keep its membership apprised of developments in the Texas Legislature which affect the occupational therapy profession. Relevant information is reported to members in the TOTA newsletter, Revista OT, and online via the legislative area of the web site. Additionally, we host an e-mail tree to notify our members of significant developments during the legislative session and beyond.
