Air Alliance Houston Reports
Port Of Houston Authority and its activities should be a boon for the Houston region and for the entire state. Its loss of public and political confidence is less troubling when reflecting on its past actions than when contemplating the possibility of repeating such conflicts on even greater scales as the port expands inside of the Houston region’s growing population and increasingly fragile environment.
It is critical to both restore the public’s faith in POHA while also ensuring that it can exist and even expand in harmony with the environment, local communities and the region as a whole. This document for the Texas Sunset Advisory Commission review of POHA contains numerous recommendations which we believe will help restore that faith and establish such harmony. The organizations which have signed their support to these recommendations represent a diverse array of constituencies – from Environmental Justice community groups that neighbor the port to international advocacy organizations with a global interest in the impact of port operations on local health and environmental integrity.
