Join us as Raul Torres (R-Corpus Christi) visits with Insiders Jim Cardle to talk about his efforts to stand up for the voters of South Texas and Valley politics.Theyre living from paycheck-to-paycheck and with a 12 unemployment rate alot of those families are just struggling to make ends meet says Torres. Consider this ... weve seen not only positive but amazing results said Torres of one of his key legislative accomplishments. Torres sits on the Texas Houses Appropriations and Insurance Committees. This Pilot Project which is what we passed (to get started) proved we were able to see a 50 or greater reduction in cost plus at the same time double the output capacity of that agency ... and this particular report did not even look into the additional cost-savings to the employer who does business with the Texas Work Force Commission (TWC). Texas Work Force Commission caseloads being handled have doubled from around 20000 to 45000 and costs have been reduced from $3.73 to $1.71 per case. And the wait-time to employers has been cut by more than 50 noted Torres. In South Texas roughly half of all students drop out of school at this time. Many graduate lack even the most basic skills and too many of those continuing on to college must take remedial courses becausetheyre simply unprepared for college. Ive heard this same story over and over again all across South Texas. Texas needs bold new leadership to properly fund and transform our public education system. Only after we improve our education system in Texas will we provide Texas families the opportunity for a better more prosperous future Torres told Texas Insiders.
