It is simply an issue of accessibility. State universities supported by the Texas taxpayer should be affordable for the children of working-class families. The tuition deregulation policy is making the dream of a college education only that — a dream," Hinojosa said. The Legislature specified that the RAHC would work with local hospitals to provide undergraduate clinical education, graduate education, including residency training programs, and other levels of medical education. The medical education component of the RAHC is based in Harlingen with Valley Baptist Medical Center serving as the primary teaching hospital for medical students receiving their 3rd and 4th year of education.
The medical research division is located in Edinburg. South Texas has the social, economic and human capital to make this succeed. Lucio pre-files six bills, including measure to create a UT medical school in the Valley. Eddie Lucio Jr. I feel that we are off to a good start for South Texas and will accomplish a great deal next session. The Health Science Center would comprise a medical school and other health-related degree programs. The opening of a medical school in South Texas would help recruit doctors to an underserved area and provide students in the region with an opportunity to attend a professional school.
SB 98 was the first bill I filed because it is my top priority," explained Lucio. We need to graduate our own doctors and keep them in our communities to ensure the very best quality healthcare for our residents. The training would be voluntary and carry stipends upon completion. This bill would benefit teachers with no special education background or experience with certain disabilities, as well as paraprofessionals who assist them in providing these direct services to children with extensive needs. SB would provide for standardized insurance policy forms.
Prior to , insurers were required to offer a number of standardized policies, so consumers knew that certain policies contained the same coverage and they could shop for the best price among different insurance companies. After , insurers were allowed to provide "a la carte" policies, making it more difficult for consumers to shop and compare. Reinstating standardized policy forms will help consumers make the best affordable decision.
Limiting the variance, except under specific circumstances, allows insurers flexibility when dealing with riskier or more congested areas of the state while moderating the economic impact on the insurance rates of Texas policyholders. Lucio filed four bills that are a major part of his legislative agenda for next session, including bills that would create a medical school and law school in South Texas and a bill that would create a Medicaid buy-in program for families of children with disabilities. Lucio, recently re-elected to another term, has long been an advocate for higher education in the Valley.

Currently, there is no public medical or law school in deep South Texas. He said he "is committed to working tirelessly towards the creation of a law school and medical school in the Rio Grande Valley. Lucio first filed bills to establish a medical and law school during the 80th Legislative Session in Lucio is also continuing to work for better healthcare services for children with disabilities. His bill filed today would create a Medicaid buy-in program for families of children with disabilities that currently do not qualify for coverage under the program.
Often times these children require specialized ongoing care early in life in order to avoid serious medical conditions when they are adults.
Unfortunately, the incredible costs of these services are often financially crippling to Texas families. The families of these children are amazingly courageous and hardworking, and deserve to have access to quality healthcare to meet the special needs of their children," explained Lucio. Lucio also filed legislation to ensure fairness and equity in the selection of host locations for U. I am proud to join with our local school officials and community leaders in fighting for the opportunity to host such events.

The small, gawky bird with his long bill and peculiar running gait first frightens his Conversations with Contemporary Chicana and Chicano Writers. There are other marks in other mate- rials and not least in the substance of words and the substance of music. The folk songs and the folk poems come from far back and like any song or any poem they have had beginnings in a single mind.
The people or the poets either who can leave their mark on the words or on the music of a country, leave it for a long time and in an honorable place. This second volume of American ballads and folk songs collected by [vii] Introduction John Lomax of Texas and his son Alan, the two men who created, under the brilliant direction of Herbert Putnam and Dr. Harold Spivacke, the Archive of American Folk Song in the Library of Congress, is a body of words and of music which tells more about the American people than all the miles of their quadruple-lane express highways and all the acres of their bill-board plastered cities — a body of words and of music which tells almost as much about the American people as the marks they have made upon the earth itself.
It is a book which many Americans will delight to open, and not once but many times. But behind this book is another body of material also a product of the work of Mr.
Putnam and the Lomaxes which reveals with even greater precision the character and the distinction of the mark left upon their music and their words by the people of this country. Behind it are the actual field recordings of the songs as their own singers sang them in the unreproduce- able rhythm and inflection and beat of the songs themselves. Many of the disks were too fragile to play more than a few times and none of them could be made publicly available. As part of our present effort in the Library of Congress to make the American record, as it is stored here, truly and broadly available to the American people themselves, we approached the Carnegie Corporation of New York in the fall of with the request that funds be granted to enable the Library to establish a Sound Studio which could manufacture pressings of the recordings of the Archive, and of other comparable materials, for sale at cost to schools, colleges, students of folk song, and the public generally.
Thanks to the imagination and understanding of Dr.
Frederick P. Kep- pel. An order list of the recordings available is now in process of publication and will shortly be ready for pixblic distribution.
