“Whether you’re in Harlingen, San Benito, Brownsville, or anywhere in between – you’ll encounter the very best that our State has to offer. I am proud of the trust that my community has placed in me and ask for your continued support as we continue to make District 38 a priority in Austin.”      — Eddie

District 38 Is My Home

I am proud to call District 38 my home. As a product of Brownsville, I chose this community as the place to raise my family. My children attend Brownsville public schools and my wife, Jaime, and I are small business owners. I am invested in our community and will continue to ensure that District 38 remains a strong hub for economic development and international culture.

EDDIE'S VISION FOR DISTRICT 38

Over the last 15 years, I have been a strong advocate for the prosperity of our region.  My goal is not only to continue the momentum we have built together but to push for a vision that exceeds expectations. Together, we will fight for education funding, so our students and teachers have adequate resources to succeed, we will fight for expanded access to cutting edge medical treatments to help the most vulnerable Texans, and we will prioritize job training and workforce development programs that drive our economy.

ON THE ISSUES -
87th Regular Session

Top Legislation Passed in 2021

#1

Healthcare: SB 827 (HB 82)

Relating to pricing of and health benefit plan cost-sharing requirements for prescription insulin.

  • Texas has an above average rate of adults who have been diagnosed with diabetes.  Studies have shown that medical expenses for those with diabetes are more than twice the average cost for those who are not diabetic. In the past 15 years, the price of insulin has nearly tripled, which has led to increased cost-sharing requirements.

  • Due to price increases, insulin rationing has become more common. This bill caps the cost-sharing requirement for prescription insulin in at $25 per 30-day supply. This would allow for consumers to be able to effectively budget for the costs associated with their insulin.
#2

Energy/Ercot: SB 415 (HB 1672)

Relating to use of electric energy storage facilities in the ERCOT power region.

  • Since the unbundling of the electric market in ERCOT into distinct retail, generation, and transmission and distribution business segments, new technologies have developed. The use of electric storage devices, such as batteries, has been discussed in dockets before the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUC), power generation companies, and transmission and distribution utilities.Secured $7.5 million for a DPS law enforcement tactical training center in Brownsville.

  • To provide the PUC with legislative guidance regarding the ownership and deployment of battery storage devices in the uniquely structured ERCOT market, SB 415 seeks to set out contract guidelines that would allow for these devices to also be used for the purpose of ensuring reliable transmission to customers.
#3

State Affairs: HB 5

Relating to the expansion of broadband services to certain areas. 

  • The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted, more than ever, the critical importance of a robust broadband infrastructure network to maintaining basic quality of life. Remote learning, access to telemedicine, economic development, and other facets of life all hinge on the availability of quality high speed Internet. Hundreds of thousands of Texans are currently without access to quality broadband and this bill seeks to move Texas forward to bridging the digital divide.
  • This bill creates the State Broadband Development Office to promote the expansion of access to broadband in Texas. The bill directs the office to create and publish a map that identifies areas with access to broadband and those without, directs the office to establish a Broadband Development Program and a State Broadband Plan.
#4

Education: HB 2721

Relating to prohibiting a student from participating in future extracurricular activities for certain conduct involving the assault of an extracurricular activity official.

  • Provides an effective deterrent against mistreatment of UIL officials by banning any student who assaults an official from future UIL competition.

  • The bill also lays out a limited appeals process in the same way that a student may appeal any other decision excluding them from UIL participation.

  • By placing this deterrent in effect, HB 2721 enhances the safety of UIL officials and strengthens the league’s mission of fostering fair competition that builds positive character traits in all participants.
