Transcript Sarah Weddington Eddie Bernice Johnson Moving on ... and up By Dolly McClary When the 66th Texas Legislature convenes it will be without the par- ticipation of two of its most prominent women members. Representatives Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Dallas) and Sarah Weddington (D-Austin) have recently accepted appointments to key federal positions with the Carter Administration. HEW Secretary Joseph Califano announced this month his appointment of Johnson as the new Principle Regional Official for the Department of Health, Education and Welfare's Region VI office in Dallas. Weddington was named last month as General Counsel for the U. S. Department of Agriculture. Both are expected to resign their house seats and be sworn in next month. SARAH WEDDINGTON As General Counsel for the U. S. Department of Agriculture, Weddington will be the chief law officer for the department and will be responsible for supervising and directing all of its legal work. This function includes representation in administrative law proceedings before the Judicial Officer and Administrative Law Judges of the department; presenting the department's case to the Department of Justice; and representing the department in connection with legal issues which arise in its relations with Congress and other agencies of the government. In line with those duties she will oversee the work of over 350 employees, most of whom are attorneys. Reared in rural west Texas, Weddington has long been close to agricultural interests and concerned about the family farm and the economic feasibility of continuing its tradition in the United States. "I'm also concerned about the implications of food on world policy," she stated recently. Weddington initially obtained a a teaching degree from McMurry College in Abilene in the early 60's. Before she had .a chance to teach, she entered law school at the University of Texas. After graduation, she worked as an assistant reporter for the American Bar Association's Special Project to Reevaluate Ethical Standards. At one time she also served as an assistant city Attorney for Fort Worth. She began private law practice in Austin in 1971. One of Weddington's most noteworthy achievements was her success as the principle attorney arguing Roe vs. Wade before the U. S. Supreme Court. That case, decided in her favor in 1973, declared Texas abortion laws unconstitutional and affected similar laws in almost every other state. EDDIE BERNICE JOHNSON As a Principle Regional Official, Johnson will be the primary HEW representative overseeing a five state region which includes Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, and New Mexico. "Though my arena is about to change, my commitment will remain the same," the former state representative said, "I consider this an opportunity to help provide hope and life-giving services to a greater number of Americans." Her administrative duties will include a central clearing point for congressional district offices seeking information and assistance in handling constituency problems; serving as the principle contact for Secretary Califano's office with state and local officials, the media, and public interest groups; providing assistance in canvassing and assessing the views of state and local officials on present and future policies, regulations and legislation; and evaluating the effectiveness of HEW programs at the client level. Johnson began her professional career as a psychiatric nurse at the V. A. Hospital in Dallas from 1956 — 1972. She was first elected to the Texas House in 1972 and has chaired the House Labor Committee since 1975, making her the first woman to chair a major house committee. A long-time party politics activist, Johnson was elected vice-chair of the State Democratic Party in 1976. That same year, she completed graduate work at Southern Methodist University and now holds a masters degree in public administration. Pleased with Johnson's acceptance, Califano stated, "Her experience in the state legislature plus a number of years in nursing service with the Veteran's Administration hospital are catered exactly to what I am looking for in these new regional positions." housov-kol'man n. 1.
