The Rio Grande Valley is taking a big step on Wednesday trying to merge the University of Texas at Brownsville and the University of Texas Pan American in the hopes of bringing a medical school to the area.

UTB President Juliet Garcia and UTPA President Robert Nelsen will testify before the House Higher Education Committee in Austin, explaining why this house bill is so important to the Valley stating, "It expands opportunities for people immediately behind that, it allows us to use our critical mass of this intentity to create new programs that individually we were not able to but, together we will have enough faculties."
