War onTrees

The city of Dallas is on the local cases of tree destruction that were in the news this week (see tinyurl.com/y7d97tcz) but we need help addressing the Special Session.
Write or call your state rep and senator and ask them to reject legislation that would take away local control of tree pruning and tree removal. Cities need trees to combat heat island conditions. We stopped it in the regular session.

ONCOR's rate proposal

Will be heard by the PUC July 31.
Read details and contact your mayor, and state reps at stoponcor.com
