County Commissioners Appoint New Medical Examiner

Lubbock County has a new medical examiner.

County Commissioners voted Monday morning to appoint Dr. Sridhar Natarajan as Lubbock County's Chief Medical Examiner. He will replace Dr. Thomas Beaver.

Natarajan will be in charge of the nearly $1.7 million county office. His annual salary is set to be nearly $450,000, and he will report directly to County Commissioners. That's because back in August, the Texas Tech Health Science Center said it would no longer oversee the Medical Examiner's Office.

Commissioners tell NewsChannel 11 they still plan to contract with 80 other surrounding counties - as is done currently under the Health Sciences Center. Natarajan previously worked as Lubbock's Medical Examiner until about two years ago.

    Senate Republicans are now considering two versions of similar legislation, one that would repeal and replace, and another that would simply repeal "Obamacare" with a two-year delay for implementation to give the Senate more time to agree on a replacement.
