In 2011 the Texas Legislature will be reviewing the effectiveness of more than a dozen Texas environmental agencies through the Sunset review process. Public input is crucial to the process. Alliance for a Clean Texas (ACT) is holding 15 community forums across the state to help Texans weigh in. Texas Impact is excited to be a co-sponsor of these “town hall meetings” and we encourage you to attend an event in your area.
The Austin town hall will take place Wednesday, November 17th from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Bass Lecture Hall at the LBJ School of Public Affairs on University of Texas campus. (This auditorium is located in the basement level of Sid Richardson Hall.) All are invited to attend these town halls to learn about the current TCEQ Sunset review, and to voice their recommendations for changes that will improve TCEQ. State representatives and senators from the Austin region have been invited to attend; these town halls provide an excellent opportunity for lawmakers to learn more about TCEQ’s impact in their community.
