To that end, State Representative Terry Wilson (Marble Falls) has formally requested the creation of a joint committee to study the issues related to quarries and APOs in Texas and to develop policy approaches to minimize the negative impacts of the industry. House leadership supports such a committee, but pressure is now needed to bring the Senate aboard.
We need your help!
Contact Key Senators
As soon as possible, please write 📬 email 📧 and/or call 📱 the nine key senators below. Urge them to encourage Lieutenant Governor Patrick to support the creation of a Joint Committee on Issues Related to APOs. Handwritten letters have the greatest impact, but if you just have time to email or call, we understand. Ideally, do all three! (Also, if you have friends or relatives living in any districts below, reach out to them: their voices as constituents may be even more powerful.) Feel free to use our sample email template and forward this email to any other interested citizens.
