Tell Your Legislators You Support Conservation, Week of April 17
Write or call your state senator to support SB
1046 (Estes) without Nichols' amendment and to reject
SB225 and SB226. SB1046 extends the successful Texas
Emissions Reduction Program that assists low income car owners with
repairs to enable cars to pass state emissions inspection. Nichols
amendment would seize all money collected by inspections and put it
into general highway funds.
SB225 and SB226 (Taylor) would make it easier for a water district to build a surface reservoir (an expensive and destructive option), and make it more difficult for the towns, homeowners and businesses who would be flooded to object to such a plan.
Here is a link that will help you write to your senator. Be sure to mention both the above issues. https://actionnetwork.org/letters/support-continuation-of-successful-texas-clean-air-program
Oppose a Border Wall
