Legislative Update

Last Tuesday, March 12, former City Councilman Ray Lopez became the winner in the runoff election for Texas House District 125, the seat recently vacated by former state representative Justin Rodriguez, who is now a County Commissioner representing Precinct 2. 

Once representative-elect Lopez is sworn in, he will begin work in the 86th Legislative Session, which at the time of this writing is fast approaching the half-way mark. Now that the District 125 seat is filled, Bexar County is back up to full representation in the Texas Legislature - 10 state representatives and 4 senators.

For local discussion on this and other advocacy topics, consider joining the BCMS Legislative and Socioeconomics Committee by contacting
