2011 ACT Lobby Day

ACT Lobby Day is Tuesday, March 15th at the Capitol. Join environmental and public health activists from around the state for our day of united legislative action in 82nd Legislative Session.  On Lobby Day, we work together to make Texas legislators aware of the important environmental problems facing our state–and the legislation they should pass to address these problems.  It’s a day of advocacy, a day of community and a day of action.

ACT works on a wide array of issuesby joining with ACT on our Lobby Day, you’re sharing your voice with the thousands of Texans united to make Texas a healthier, cleaner place to live.  You’ll receive briefings about the priority issues for 2011 and advocacy training to communicate with decision makers more effectively. We’ll have our training dinner on Monday, March 14th–all are invited to join in this special evening of updates from legislative insiders and issue caucuses with environmental advocates from around the state.

2011 is a turning point for the environment in Texas. With the Legislature set to take up the future of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, the Texas Railroad Commission, and the Texas Water Development Board this year, Texas lawmakers will determine how our health and our environmental are protected for the next decade.  Texans need these agencies to be more responsive to average citizens, more transparent in the their activities, and more protective of our most precious resources–our health and our natural resources.

For those traveling from outside the state, ACT is making special arrangements including booking hotel rooms and working with local groups to coordinate carpools.
