Ben Leman

Rep. Ben Leman, District 13, speaks to the crowd at the ribbon-cutting of the Washington County Republican Party headquarters Feb. 7 about the impact of the Republican Party in Washington County and in the United States.

State Representative Ben Leman is one of more than 50 state legislators calling upon the state of Texas to loosen restrictions on visitation at nursing homes and long-term care facilities.

In a letter Thursday to Texas Health and Human Services Commission’s (HHSC) Interim Executive Commissioner Phil Wilson, Leman, along with 44 other members of the Texas House and ten state senators, publicly asked for a plan to be put into action to allow for limited family visits to facilities.
