Transcript SENFRONIA THOMPSON SUSAN McBEE EDDIE BERNICE JOHNSON St. Rep. Senfronia Thompson (third term, D-Houston) has a Master's degree in education with professional experience as a secondary and special education teacher. She is now studying law. This session, the Houston Democrat will monitor medical malpractice and energy legislation and intends to maintain her strong interest in education issues. She hopes to secure state funding to support her scholarship bill from the last session. This bill will provide assistance for vocational training, basing distribution primarily on need as opposed to academic standards. SARAH WEDDINGTON Thompson also plans to introduce a package of "habitability" legislation which will compel landlords to maintain rental property at minimal standards and will provide grievance procedures for tenants. Her committee assignments include Higher Education, Local and Consent Calendar, and Judicial Affairs where she serves as vice-chair. St. Rep. Earnestine Gloss- brenner (first term, D-Alice) has a Master's degree in mathematics and is presently on leave of absence from Alice High School where she chaired the math department for 13 years. IRMA RANGEL EARNESTINE GLOSSBRENNER BETTY DENTON Election reform is one of Glossbrenner's priorities. She is specifically interested this session in eliminating certain "intimidating" features of the election process in precincts which still use punch-card or paper ballots. In many cases, voters must now sign ballot stubs which can be misused to determined the way an individual votes. Another area of interest to Glossbrenner is the state welfare system. In addition to serving on the committee on Business and Industry and its sub-committee on Industrial Development, she has been appointed to the Health and Welfare Committee and is on three of its sub-committees: appropriate matters of Mental Health and Mental Retardation, Public Welfare, and Aging of which she is vice-chair. In these capacities, the representative from Alice will work for passage of legislation to encourage and foster independence among public assistance recipients. Displaced homemaker programs appeal directly to her interests, specifically in terms of assisting people who want and need jobs but do not have the requisite skills to enter the job market above the minimum wage level. She will also be working to expand adult education programs and health care delivery to small towns and rural areas. St. Rep. Betty Denton (first term, D-Waco), a recent law school graduate from Baylor University, is replacing her husband, Lane Denton. He gave up his legislative seat to run for the Texas Railroad Commission last spring. Waco lies within two state legislative districts and Rep. Denton serves that part of the city which is predominantly rural and has a largely minority population. Baylor University, Texas State Technical Institute and Quinn College are in her district. One problem Denton faces is that her district is one of the few in the state whose population is declining. She is on the Agriculture and Criminal Jurisprudence committees, is very interested in the legislative issues of higher education, utility regulation, unemployment and social services, and will introduce displaced home- maker legislation. St. Rep. Susan McBee (second term, D-Del Rio) has secondary teaching certificates in English and Spanish. She is vice-chair for both the Elections and Calendar Committees and is a member of the Agriculture and Livestock Committee. McBee represents the largest geographical district in the state, encompassing nine counties and 22,000 square miles. She is primarily interested in election laws, particularly as they affect the peculiarities of her district. In the 64th session she successfully sponsored legislation which reduced the number of persons which can legally constitute a voting district. Before that, many of her constituents had to drive over 200 miles to vote Betty King succeeded Charles Schnabel as Secretary of the Senate. He resigned recently after pleading guilty to official misconduct in exchange for the dismissal of other felony indictments against him. King is the second woman to serve as Secretary in the history of the Senate. She has been employed in the Legislature since the 1940's. She has worked for individual senators and as Senate Journal Clerk As Senate Secretary, King is responsible for seeing that legislation is accurately and properly prepared and processed. BETTY KING // you would like information about any legislation considered during this session, you may call the Legislative Reference Library [toll free]: 1-800-252-9693 They will provide information on legislators, special bills and their ; status by subject, author and number, as well as information concerning committee hearings PUBLIC NOTICE SER-Jobs for Progress of Houston, Inc., (SER-JFP) will submit an application for $175,000.00 for the 1977-78 school year to the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Office of Education, under the Emergency School Aid Act (ESAA).
