GEAA: Tree Clearcutting Bill Still Alive

According to Greater Edwards Aquifer Alliance on 5/18, Sen. Troy Fraser amended HB 1665 (a bill about notification requirements regarding certain land use regulations in an area near military facilities in San Angelo, Texas) to include failed HB 1388/SB 732 – the dreaded tree clearcutting bills. In short, Fraser’s amendment would apply to all of Texas and disallows regulation by municipalities of planting, clearing, or harvesting trees or vegetation in the extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ) of a municipality.

If this bill allows clear-cutting with bulldozers, it could have devastating consequences for water quality in creeks, rivers and aquifer.

GEAA asks that you contact your Texas representatives and senators today to request that they oppose Sen. Fraser’s amendment to HB 1665. Please contact Annalisa Peace, GEAA Executive Director, 210-320-6294 with questions
