|Rep. Ramos' Legislative |
Assistant Ana Pomar and me
Thanks a million to State Representatives Ana-María Ramos (D-Dallas) and Rafael Anchia (D-Dallas) for their genuine support of this legislation. At least for now, it appears to be getting fast-tracked to the Texas House. Ana Pomar, Rep. Ramos' Legislative
Assistant has been a pleasure to work with throughout. She even had breakfast waiting for us this morning! :-)
|Macario Hernandez, Senator|
Menéndez, Alfonoso Herrera and me.
Many, many thanks to Fátima Menéndez, Esq., Legislative Staff Attorney with the Mexican American Legal Defense & Educational Fund (MALDEF) and Morgan Craven, National Director of Policy Intercultural Development Research Association for their excellent testimony, as well. Other steadfast, committed supporters from UT include soon-to-be Dr. Greg Pulte and Dr. Macario Hernandez, as well as doctoral student Delina Zapata, and masters student, Teresa Hernandez.
Senator José Menéndez is carrying the companion bill (SB2425) in the Senate which isn't moving as fast at the moment. Thanks to Senator Menéndez, Tomás Larralde, Emily Galdeano, Lexi O'Hair, and Arrian Ebrahimi for your equally sincere efforts on the senate side.
Making progress. Too much fun!
