Posted by youngsierrans on April 1, 2009
Are you having a challenging time keeping up with all the pro-conservation and environmental protection bills being crafted and discussed during the 81st Texas Legislative Session?
The Alliance for a Clean Texas (ACT) is making it easy for you! The ACT is a non-profit alliance of more than 20 environmental, public interest, consumer rights and religious organizations dedicated to improving public health, quality of life and the environment in Texas by working for change at the regulatory and legislative levels.
ACT is currently tracking over 300 bills. You can find information about ACT’s weekly Top 10 by checking out their homepage. Drill down to each bill’s status, author and specific text by clicking the highlighted bill.
Now all you have to do is call or write your local legislators & committee chairmen and encourage them to support these important bills. Visit Texas Legislature Online (Who Represents Me? on the homepage) to identify your senator/representative and their contact info.
