Sen. Lucio lauds decision to grant Irma Rangel Pharmacy School in Kingsville $10 Million
AUSTIN, TX--"I was very pleased that Lt. Gov. Dewhurst extended the courtesy of informing me that this first free-standing professional school in South Texas is scheduled to receive $10 million before the public announcement was made. I thank him and Gov. Perry for this critically needed funding ensuring that we move forward. When we return for the next regular session, I will exert every effort to see that the Irma Rangel Pharmacy School funding is included as a line item in the state budget."
