Alliance for a Clean Texas Action Alert, April 14, 2017

Submitted by Sean on Fri, 04/14/2017 - 18:00

Dear ACT Friends,

Thanks again for your emails and calls this Texas legislative session. With the session getting busier than ever, we need your help to move bills out of their respective committees and to secure desired vote outcomes on the House and Senate floors.

The regularly scheduled ACT conference call will be this Sunday, April 16 at 5:30 pm.

Today we need you to take action on the following bills at your earliest convenience.

ACTION 1 – Ask your local Senator to support SB 1046 to continue funding for the Texas Emissions Reduction Program (TERP) which supports clean air efforts with cleaner vehicles. Send a message before Tuesday by clicking here.

ACTION 2 – Tell the House Natural Resources Committee members to support HB 2240 which would require water utilities to ask customers to curb wasteful outdoor watering before getting funding for projects. Find out more by clicking here.
