WESLACO, RGV – State Sen. Eddie Lucio says he will be bringing Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and Texas Education Agency Commissioner Mike Morath to the Rio Grande Valley.

Speaking at a meeting of the Lower Rio Grande Valley Development Council, Lucio said the visit would not be political in nature.

Rather, it would include a town hall meeting in October that would focus on the increased funding state legislators approved for public education.

Lucio also expressed support for a constitutional amendment that is on the November ballot. The amendment would allow the Texas Water Development Board to issue $200 million in bonds for water supply, sewer service, and drainage projects in areas defined as economically distressed.
