More than 40 residents of the River Crossing subdivi- remain part of the county. Part of River Crossing is included in Bulverde's one-mile extra-territorial jurisdiction.

Residents of the subdivision, located in an unincorporated area northeast of the Texas 46 and U.S. 281 intersection, collected 356 signatures from registered voters in River Crossing petitioning for their neighborhood to annexed.

"It looks like 'mark-up' in the Senate Finance (Committee) will be this week and a vote may come next week," said Rafael Ayuso, communications manager with AARP-Texas, part of the national nonprofit, nonpartisan membership organization that helps people 50 years and older. A March poll conducted by AARP of 500 adults age 18 and older shows 86 percent of Texans surveyed supported a proposal to allow Medicare to use its bargaining power to negotiate prescription drug prices with pharmaceutical companies. Currently, Medicare, which covers 43 million people including more than 2.5 million Texans, is banned from negotiating prescription drug prices. AARP's poll shows support for allowing Medicare to negotiate prescription drug prices was strong across party lines, Ayuso said. Eighty-six percent of Democrats, 90 percent of Republicans and 83 percent of Independents agreed Medicare should use its bargaining power to negotiate lower prices for prescription drugs, he said. Ayuso said AARP believes the power to negotiate would allow Medicare to achieve additional savings for beneficiaries, improve the long-term sustainability of the Medicare drug program and reduce costs for taxpayers.
