    EL CENTRO — U.S. Rep. Juan Vargas on Thursday announced the introduction of a bill that would make a total of $5 million in funds available to help counties with childhood asthma rates above 12 percent.

    The Asthma Care and Prevention in Rural Communities Act would specifically fund asthma-related educational efforts and direct the federal government to research the burden that asthma has on rural communities.
