The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) is getting its performance evaluation from state lawmakers. By the end of this legislative session, lawmakers will pass legislation to give the agency that is supposed to protect our communities from corporate polluters its marching orders for the next decade.
The agency has been called a “reluctant regulator” that too often sides with industries that pollute our air, land and water. It’s something we have heard repeatedly from everyday Texans.
The legislation – called a “Sunset” bill – is up before the Senate Committee on Natural Resources & Economic Development. Contact the committee today and demand a TCEQ that works for people, not polluters.
However, this particular call to action doesn't target leaders representing your district. Don't despair, there are many other ways you can support us!
