2015 marked 20 years since CACTX began operations. The San Antonio Express News ran an open-letter to President George W. Bush authored by Joy Rauls and CACTX Board President Joe Cosgrove, Jr. This letter exemplifies our gratitude to our 74th Texas Legislature for adopting the CAC model into statute and establishing CACs as the best practice approach to working these difficult cases. With the passage of SB 81 in 1995, Texas was set on the trajectory to become the national leader in this movement.
