Representatives from the County Judge's Office and the Hidalgo County Health Department reported on Hidalgo County's legislative packet and bills before the Texas Legislature that are of interest to Hidalgo County. Notable legislation under consideration this session includes the proposed merging of UTPA and UTB and the creation of a medical school in the Rio Grande Valley. County Judge Ramon Garcia, along with other Hidalgo County leaders, testified at a hearing last week in Austin on the proposed merger and medical school. Other issues include a proposal to add some enforcement authority to the residential construction inspection authority counties may exercise.
