Senator Lucio Champions HCR 86 Calling for a RGV Veterans' Hospital
Senator Eddie Lucio did a great job today as he carried on our legislation,HCR 86 before the Senate Committee on Veteran Affairs & Military Installations.
HCR 86 communicates the will of the Texas Legislature - to the President of the United States, the Secretary of the United States Department of Veterans' Affairs, the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, the President of the Senate, and the Texas Congressional members - that a VA hospital needs to be built in the Rio Grande Valley.
After the hearing we all gathered to commiserate on the successful presentation by Sen. Lucio and our South Texas veterans.
