Dear Friends,

This morning, I joined Mornings with Maria to discuss the importance of the House of Representatives joining the Senate and returning to Washington.


National Update:
The American Hospital Association produced a one-pager on the Small Business Administration’s further guidance on the eligibility of public hospitals for the Paycheck Protection Program.

The National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities announced a grant opportunity for organizations to address COVID-19 challenges in racial and ethnic minority populations.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services released an updated Frequently Asked Questions document for State Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Agencies.

Texas Update:
The Texas Medical Association published a white paper explaining the Texas Medical Board’s emergency rule on minimum safety standards for physicians engaging in patient care during this public health crisis.

Until next time, this is your doctor's note.

Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D.
