February 19, 2012 is a day SAPD Officer Jonathan Esquivel can't remember. In fact, he can't remember March or April either. Esquivel had just gotten out of his patrol car on Loop 410 and Evers to help a stranded motorist when the driver of a pick up slammed into him.
After battling many injuries, Esquivel is focused on one thing, "I want to be a police officer. I don't see me doing anything else so I want to get back whenever I can to make sure I'm ready to go and do everything I was doing before".
For now, Officer Esquivel is well on his way to recovery.
Technicality topples key financial reporting bill
May 22, 2013 02:25 GMT
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- A much-watched bill designed to give the public more information on schools, taxes, government spending and debt held by state entities has gone down on a House technicality.
The measure was sponsored by Sen. Tommy Williams, who chairs the Senate's powerful Finance Committee. It was carried in the House by Rep. Jim Pitts, head of appropriations.
The bill would have required increased disclosure by public bodies. But it died Tuesday night, after San Antonio Democratic Rep. Philip Cortez raised a parliamentary objection.
Critics worried it could place undo reporting burdens on smaller entities. But modifications to address those concerns had helped the bill sail through the Senate 29-1.
The bill was backed by conservative and tea party groups worried about excessive government bond debt. Some good-government groups also supported it.
