Texans expect our environmental agency--the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to protect our health. Right now, TCEQ often falls short of these expectations due to lax enforcement of existing clean air and water laws. Recently, TCEQ has been in the news as being under scrutiny from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and as having given inaccurate air quality information to the city and public of Fort Worth.
Right now is a good time to get involved in the state agency review of TCEQ. On Thursday, June 10th, the Alliance for a Clean Texas (ACT), of which Texas Impact is a founding member, is hosting a conference call to provide information about the review of TCEQ and ways to get involved.
When: June 10th, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
