Do you have a nice set of wheels but can't find a place to park them?

Landlords must permit reasonable modifications to allow persons with disabilities full use of their apartment. Prohibiting the installation of handrails or ramps is in violation of the Fair Housing Act.

Note: The Fair Housing Act provides that while the housing provider must permit the modification, the tenant is responsible for paying the cost of the modification.

People 50+ will be eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine beginning March 15. Texas will continue to protect those at the greatest risk of COVID-19 hospitalization and death.

“We’ve seen a remarkable decrease in the number of hospitalizations and deaths since people 65 and older started becoming fully vaccinated in January. Expanding to ages 50 to 64 will continue the state’s priorities of protecting those at the greatest risk of severe outcomes and preserving the state’s health care system.”
-Imelda Garcia, DSHS associate commissioner for laboratory and infectious disease services and chair of the Expert Vaccine Allocation Panel.

There are about 5 million Texans between the ages of 50 and 64; more than 1 million of them are already vaccinated.
