AUSTIN, TX– State Representative Eddie Lucio III (Brownsville) is celebrating the commencement of the 84th legislative session. On Tuesday, January 13, the Texas Legislature convened at noon.

“I am humbled and honored to serve District 38 for a fifth term,” Lucio said. “This session we have the opportunity to continue leading the nation as an economic engine, but we also have the opportunity to make gains in how we care for and treat all Texans.”

Building on success in the 83rd Session, the Representative has thus far filed three bills regarding higher education, public safety, and property tax. He is once again seeking to bring higher education opportunities to South Texas by filing a bill to create a law school in the Rio Grande Valley.

“Last session, we did great work to fund our State Water Plan as well as transportation infrastructure,” Lucio commented. “I am confident in this Legislature’s will to invest in Texas, ensuring prosperity for all Texans.”

The Texas Legislature will be in session until June 1, 2015.
