Tax Cut Extensions Bill Passed

WASHINGTON D.C.– Congressman Henry Cuellar (TX-28) announced that the extension of the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts passed Congress last night, with a vote of 277-148. The bill now goes on to be signed into law by the president.

“I am thankful that my colleagues in Congress came together and realized that raising taxes would be an inappropriate burden for hardworking American families,” said Congressman Cuellar.  “An extension of these tax cuts will help generate economic growth by making available to job-creating small businesses the capital to expand and invest in new ventures.”

CBO estimates suggest that extending the Bush era tax cuts- which were set to expire on Dec. 31, 2010- for all Americans, could reduce unemployment to below 9% and generate economic growth of 0.6 to 1.7 % of GDP.

Local College Grad Shares Her Story

In high school, Maria Magdalena Rodriquez was a very active student. She was involved in varsity volleyball, basketball, cross country, track, soft ball and soccer. Even though she kept herself busy, she managed to graduate as a Texas Scholar in the top 10 percent of her class and with Highest Honors.

She always liked learning and believed that in order to make it in this world, you need an education. So as soon as she graduated, she knew she wanted to continue her in education, but in what? She enjoyed sketching, drawing, building and creating things with her hands so she decided to get into architectural drafting.

“I figured why not drafting?” Maria explained. “I thought about making plans for designing my own home, as well as designing floor plans as a business to make some money.”

Local Group Supports "No Smoking" Ordinance

Rio Grande City H.S. student council members courageously made an appearance to advocate for ‘No Smoking in Public Places’ issue.  David De Luna, a student council member informed City Council members about the dangers of second hand smoke.  “Nearly 3,000 people die every year because of second hand smoke.  I don’t think people should have to die because of someone else’s choice to smoke around others in public places.”  De Luna stated. 

Rio Grande City does not have an ordinance that protects people from the dangers of second hand smoke.  Unfortunately, some people are not aware that exposure to second hand smoke increases acute respiratory infections, severe asthma and SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) in children.  Thirty minutes of exposure to second hand smoke decrease coronary artery blood flow.  The most recent U.S. Surgeon General report (2010) states that there is no safe level of second hand smoke.  De Luna concluded by stating that this was a public issue and one’s personal freedom ends when it causes harm to others.

-For more information on ‘No Smoking in Public Places’ issue, please contact Sandra Garza, Starr County  Community Coalition, SCAN, Inc.  716-1795

Nutrition Act Hopes to Reduce Childhood Obesity, Improve Health

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Henry Cuellar (TX-28), announced that the House passed the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, the most significant improvement to child nutrition programs in more than 30 years. The bill is expected to be signed into law by President Obama.

Focusing on improving children’s health and reducing childhood obesity, the bill authorizes $4.5 billion over 10 years to provide an additional 21 million meals to children annually and connect approximately 115,000 new students to the school meal programs, as well as establish national nutrition standards for all foods sold in schools throughout the day.

“Every child needs access to a healthy start—not only for the health of the child, but for the health of our community as well,” said Congressman Cuellar. “By providing our students with healthier meals, we are enriching their bodies and minds to succeed in school and focus in the classroom. Also, this bill allows us to start reversing the trajectory of childhood obesity and hunger and address the urgent needs of our youngest and most vulnerable population.”

Local College Instructor Joins Navy

Rey Anzaldua Jr., assistant professor of business computer systems at South Texas College, was probably the last person you would think of to sign up for the U.S. Navy. A very busy man, he’s a full-time instructor at STC, has a research lab at The University of Texas-Pan American, is a PhD student, earning his realtor’s license and managing his father’s organic farm in Weslaco -  seems like he has enough on his plate, right?

But the 41 year old father of three felt he could handle another challenge. So he pulled up the anchor and signed his name to the Navy’s dotted line in 2009. A year later, he is an Ensign in the Navy, enjoying the adventures offered by a life less ordinary.

“To date, I have met and worked with U.S. Navy SEALS, Submarine/Deep Water Rescue and submarine crews in San Diego,” said Anzaldua. “The whole experience has been extremely interesting – especially the people.”

Middle Class Tax-Cuts Approved

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Henry Cuellar (TX-28), announced that the House successfully passed the Middle Class Tax Relief Act of 2010, which permanently extended income tax cuts for all income up to $250,000 a year. The bill now goes on to a vote in the Senate.

A typical middle-class American family will save approximately $1,000 per year and the wealthiest 3% of Americans would actually receive an average tax cut of over $6,000 next year.

“American families simply cannot bear the additional burden of higher taxes in these tough economic times,” said Congressman Cuellar. “Though I also support at least a temporary extension of tax cuts for Americans who earn more than $250,000, we had to act now to make sure that the middle class is protected. If Congress did not act, taxpayers at every income level would have been burdened with a hefty tax increase. A tax increase in a fragile economy would stunt the nation’s incremental growth by discouraging business investment and job creation, reducing consumer confidence and increasing market uncertainty.”

U.S. President Recruits Local College Instructor

“I will miss my family and my students, but I will also miss the Mexican food in the Valley,” South Texas College Political Science Instructor Esteban Soto III jokingly said. “But, there is one little Tex-Mex place in D.C. that makes pretty good fajitas. Oh and there is no Whataburger!”

Soto is getting mentally prepared for his move to Washington, D.C. just following the fall 2010 semester. He has been given a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity to serve as the U.S. Marshal for the Superior Court for the District of Columbia. He was nominated for the position by U.S. President Barack Obama.
