Texas lawmakers allocate $15 million for anti-HIV drugs

Texas lawmakers allocate $15 million for anti-HIV drugs

The Texas senate finance committee on Tuesday agreed to fund anti-HIV medication for 2,000 low-income state patients at a cost of $15 million. "If we don't do this, it will cost the state more, because people who are sick with HIV/AIDS can live productive lives and can work in many cases, and so this medication will enable them to do that," said state senator Judith Zaffirini, vice chair of the committee.
