Toxic Alert Bill

Last Tuesday, a group of folks came with the Healthy Port Communities Coalition to the Capitol in Austin to testify on House Bill 1927, the Toxic Alert Bill. There, they shared their concerns with representatives on the House Environmental Regulations Committee. The Toxic Alert Bill will help communities get out of harm’s way when a toxic emergency strikes by providing for a system of notification for communities across the state.
