Texas Legislature: Rep. Diego Bernal, District 123

Lawmaker heading into session with education top of mind

SAN ANTONIO – Rep. Diego Bernal is taking lessons he learned from public school leaders during the past year to his colleagues at the State Capitol. The former San Antonio city councilman is focused on improving the lives of children through improving testing standards, providing food for hungry children and making sure teachers are able to simply do their jobs.

While the representative is focused on education, he's filed a number of bills during the early filing period.
