The Alliance for a Clean Texas has a suggestion:
Texans expect our environmental agency to protect our health. TCEQ too often falls short of these expectations due to lax enforcement of existing clean air and water laws. The sunset review process offers all concerned Texans a chance to advocate for much-needed reforms at TCEQ.
Here are three simple things you can do this Earth Day to advocate for stronger environmental regulation in Texas:
- Spread the word about ACT’s TCEQ Sunset campaign. Share this flier in all your Earth Day activities–online and at your local community events. Don’t forget to invite all your friends to join our mailing list, follow ACT on Twitter or become a fan on Facebook.
- Collect postcards calling for strong environmental protection in Texas. Tell lawmakers we need a strong TCEQ, and ask your friends to do the same! Order a free “Make Pollution History” postcard kit from ACT.
- Help organize a town hall meeting. From El Paso to Nacogdoches, Dallas to Brownsville and everywhere in between, ACT partners are working to make sure Texans have a chance to voice their hopes and concerns about TCEQ. Sign up to join one of ACT’s local teams throughout the state.
There you have it. Happy Earth Day!
