CHICAGO -- Sunday, June 13, is reference committee day at the AMA House of Delegates. The house splits up into eight committees to gather member testimony on reports and resolutions before the house. The reference committees' recommendations form the starting point for full house action later in the week.
The members of the Texas Delegation to the AMA have work groups for each reference committee. Based on TMA and AMA policy, they devise a Texas position for each report and resolution, monitor the reference committee debate, and add their own testimony.
