Did you see who's helping water bully, Claytie Williams, in his quest to export water from Ft. Stockton, recently denied by a court? Why, it's "Mr. Balkanizer" who now chairs Texas House Natural Resources Committee. Be sure to watch that last frame -- it would be hilarious if if weren't too true.
Meanwhile, Sen. Charles Perry, who chairs Senate Ag, Water and Rural Affairs, suddenly sprang this bill (HB 1172) on food growers' local control to protect their crops and local citizens. Perry files it late, gives himself a quick hearing in HIS OWN Committee and he calls that fair? Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance wants you to take action on this bull.
- Call Senator Charles Perry (512-463-0128) and Rep. Lyle Larson (512-463-0646). Tell the staffer who answers the phone that you would appreciate it if Rep. Larson or Sen. Perry would please stop abusing their authority.
