aside partisan wrangling and do the right thing by passing a billion financial rescue package for Mexico But there are few signs that lawmakers are willing to listen Instead Republicans and Democ rats are blaming each other for the delays that have put the package of loan guarantees to Mexico in jeop ardy Republicans who control the House and Senate said they still believed the measure could win congressional approval but some conceded the hur dles become more difficult with each passing day As 1 have repeatedly advised the executive branch it is my strong view that the risks of defeat go up in direct relation to the delay in consideration of the said Rep Jim Leach McALLEN Texas AP A rabies outbreak has led a South Texas law maker to introduce a bill in the Texas Legislature to allow veterinarians to move more quickly to detain animals suspected of having the disease Under present law the only way a veterinarian could detain an animal is if he had cause to believe a person may have become infected with rabies This is one step too said state Rep Roberto Gutierrez DMcAIlen Gutierrez introduced legislation on Thursday in Austin that would allow vets to test an animal that may be in the early stages of rabies instead of wait ing for the animal to infect a person Gutierrez said recent cases of rabies including the death of a 14yearold Edinburg boy prompted him to intro duce a stronger rabies quarantine law A statewide rabies quarantine has been imposed for the first time in state history as the result of the spread of vir ulent strains of the disease The out break has spread to 18 Texas counties since it started in 1988 raising fears that the disease might spread into the states cities An effort to stay the spread of rabies in South Texas will start Feb 14 when

do on up to an area south of San Anto nio and end north of Corpus Christi said Gayne Feameyhough director of the Rabies Vaccination Project of the Texas Department of Health The disease has killed four people in Texas since 1990 while more than more have undergone rabies inoculations after being exposed to the virus Rabies is preventable through vac cination but is usually fatal once it moves into nerve tissue Although coyotes and dogs are the most common transmitters of rabies all warmblooded animals are fair game for the disease In recent weeks rabies has victim ized at least eight
