Transcript HCWPC Viewpoint, October 1982 Page 3 Continued from page 2 • 113th District Court: Geraldine Tennant • 308th District Court (family): Manuel Leal • 208th District Court: Thomas Routt • 209th District Court: Michael McSpadden • 262nd District Court: Doug Shaver • 295th District Court: Sharolyn Wood • County Criminal Court #9: Alfred "Al" Leal • County Civil Court #1: Ed Landry PLEASE NOTE: We have withdrawn our endorsement of Ron Wilson, State Representative for District 131 due to what we view as lack of ethics and improprieties in collecting per diem from his committee budget. So, things look pretty good, but it doesn't mean we can relax by any means. 'The Squeal Rule": proposed by Marjorie Mecklenburg at the Dept. of Health and Human Services has been dropped for the time being. The proposed rule change was to require agencies receiving federal funding to notify parents within ten days after dispensing prescription contraceptives to teenagers. Thousands of letters arrived and unofficial samplings revealed 70-90% opposed the rule change. Writing does help! Military Retirement Pay: In August, the House passed legislation giving military retirement pay the same status as any other pension when state divorce courts consider the assets of a marriage to be divided. The Senate also recently passed a similar bill. Former spouses must have been married for at least 20 years, and the law is retroactive to July 1981! A major step forward! LEGISLATIVE UPDATE: ERA resolution numbers: are SJR 213 and HJR 533. Senator Bentsen has surprisingly agreed to be a co-sponsor! A Setback For The New Right! Reproductive Freedom: Press coverage of this saga has been excellent. The Senate voted to table Senator Helms' anti- abortion rider to legislation concerned with raising the federal debt limit. Prior to this, Helms tried three times to cut off the filibuster staged by liberal Senators delaying consideration of the human life bill. Finally, it was time to move on and Helms announced he would not seek consideration of his HLB during the remainder of this year. Both Senators Tower and Bentsen voted favorably and they are to be thanked! Please write and do so, urging that they continue to vote pro-choice. Also, Senator Hatch withdrew his SJR 110 Constitutional amendment from consideration this year. Another victory for choice. Hatfield's S2372 anti-abortion funding bill was also withdrawn, revised and sent back to a committee which is predominately pro-choice. Hopefully that's a good-bye. POLICY COUNCIL SLOTS NEED TO BE FILLED The HCWPC is allotted five positions on the state policy council which is comprised of the state chair, all state officers, and delegations from all Caucuses around Texas. We are one bf those delegations. The Council meets once every three months in Austin on a Saturday. It's an easy trip up and back. Business is conducted on the state caucus level with input from each local. In essence, it functions like a regular caucus. It's a wonderful chance to meet women from all over the state of Texas and find out about their caucuses. On October 19, we will vote by self-nomination procedure to elect five members to the policy council positions. Please consider yourself. It's not alot of work. In fact, it's alot of fun. Call Lynne Parsons with any questions. MEMBERSHIP FORM Clip and mail this form to: Karen Shea, 1031 Ivy Wall, Houston, Texas 77079. Make check payable to HCWPC.
