Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We've just received word that tomorrow, March 13, the full Texas Senate will consider SB24 the Senate counterpart to HB1000 that would authorize the merger of UT Brownsville and UT Pan American and transform the Regional Academic Health Center into a medical school that would also become part of the new South Texas university.

The Senate will convene at 11 a.m., and the agenda will be posted online. If you are in Austin on Wednesday, we invite you to join us to witness the bill's progress. You may access the proceedings on live broadcast.
