Senator Hutchison Here In East Texas

Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison was in East Texas Thursday afternoon. The Texas senator spoke at UT Health Center in Tyler about the importance of investing in research institutions like the Science Center. On a side note, we asked to her give us her opinion on a health issue currently in the news, the SCHIP. Recently, an expansion bill for the State Children's Health Insurance Program was vetoed by President Bush. 

"I thought it was a good compromise bill, and I think now that the President has vetoed it that we need to work the President to come up with a solution that will continue the program and I think the President wants that as well," Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison says.

Senator Hutchison also toured UT Health Center's facilities to get a first-hand look  at the institution's new research and training programs.
