Congressional redistricting and budget, main concerns
State Representative for District 37, Rene Oliveira will be running for his 14th term in office, but his main concern this time is getting more representation in Washington to bring much needed funding to Rio Grande Valley, by getting another Valley based congressman in the next redistricting plan.
And another big issue for the next legislative session...the budget, Oliveira says that they will probably go in the next session as much as 11 billion dollars short.
