Catholic Charities and other advocates for immigrants are making plans to deal with 180,000 North Texans covered by the policy change President Obama unveiled Thursday night. So how’s the idea playing on both sides of the issue?
If Texas wants to keep receiving billions of federal dollars to help hospitals care for uninsured patients, state lawmakers may have to look again at expanding Medicaid coverage for impoverished adults, some political observers say.
In addition to the many candidates on the Nov. 4 ballot, Texans are voting on a constitutional amendment known as Proposition 1. If it passes, a portion of oil and gas tax money flowing into the state’s rainy day savings account will be used for transportation.
