a district 2 trustee and a district 4 trustee The election will be held on August 12 1995 However a new election law has brought about two major changes The first change is that writein can didates must declare themselves by July 13 1995 Any writein candidate that has not declared him self must be thrown out The second change is due to the change in the Texas Constitution All elected officials of the state or its subdivisions must file a statement with the Secretary of State before the oath of office can be taken This statement must be filed after the canvassing of the ballots and before the oath can be taken With fax this can be done and the candidate can come back and take the oath later in the same said Charles Brad berry Superintendent of Schools In other business the board

to go to court with said Karer Simpson Executive Director of Education Services Tejeda blasts proposed cuts in yets benefits WASHINGTON Con gressman Frank Tejeda condemned as unconscionable the House Budget Committees recent proposal to reduce funding for veterans benefits and health care by more than billion during the next 7 years when com pared to funding necessaiy to main tain the current level of medical care and benefits The Budget Resolution for Fiscal Years 1996 through 2002 approved last week by the House Bud get Committee would freeze VA med ical care funding at fiscal year 1995 levels for 7 years forcing the VA to close as many as 41 medical facilities lay off up to medical care employees eliminate major medical construction funding reduce VA med ical research funding and deny treat ment to veterans In addi tion the 7year freeze would increase delays by the Veterans Benefit Admin istration in the processing of benefits claims which currently takes a mini mum of 160 days Such wholesale reductions in VA funding will devastate the VAs abili ty to provide quality health said Now is the not the time to retreat from our sacred covenant with Americas veterans Currently 8 mil lion veterans are 65 years old or older and that number will peak at 9 mil lion by 1999 The budget freeze would reduce the medical services available to these aging veterans in their time of greatest need South Texas will bear the brunt of these budget cuts The freeze will prevent the VA from expanding medical care to south Texas veterans who currently must drive considerable distances to wait hours in crowded V A facilities to receive necessary outpa tient medical care The mittee proposal to freeze veterans health care spending while other federal health care programs will increase between 5 and 7 percent annually is plainly unconscionable It is hypocritical to see some mem bers of Congress propose wholesale reductions in veterans benefits and services shortly after singing praises for veterans during celebrations of the 50th anniversary of VE Day and the 20th anniversary of the end of the Viet nam said Tejeda Veterans ben efits do not enrich veterans but instead make them whole When we needed them our veterans were there for us and we shouldbe therevfor4hem in their time of The Budget Committees FY96 Budget Resolution proposes to elimi nate federal veterans employment and homeless services deny disability com pensation benefits to veterans who are physically dependent on health care providers for medical services increase prescription drug copayments by continue to round down to the nearest dollar disability compensation COLAs permanently maintain the Montgomery GI Bill COLA at 50 percent and per manently extend several expiring reduction provisions The resolution also proposes to reduce the Consumer Price Index CPI in 1999 and there after which will reduce COLAs for veterans disability compensation and pensions as well as for all other federal benefits such as Social Security The full House of Representatives was scheduled to consider the Budget Res olution on May 18 Our nations veterans are painfully aware of said Tejeda Since 1900 veterans have foregone billions of dollars in benefits and medical care for the sake of deficit reduction even though VA benefits and services are not the cause of our current budget deficit In constant dollars spending on veterans benefits and services has increased only 62 percent in 27 years from 1967 to 1994 while spending on all other mandatory human resources programs has increased nearly 400 per cent during the same time period We should be expanding the availability of quality veterans health care not reducing its availability we should make the wait for benefits shorter not longer Before there was a Contract with we made a sacred contract with our veterans and their widows that we would take care of them for bearing the burden of said Teje da With that promise in mind I strongly oppose the Budget Commit tees proposal to reduce VA spending by more than billion during the next 7 GIFT BOOKS AVAILABLE WALNUT 6 629640O IH 35 and Walnut Ave OUctl Hal 19 Till Sal Night May
