Protecting the Environment

Cleaner air

The DFW Metroplex has some of the dirtiest air anywhere in the country, and if the state doesn’t help us improve our air quality, our region faces tough federal penalties – penalties that will be bad for business and consumers. Chris believes we must work aggressively to reduce the level of ozone and other pollutants in the atmosphere in order to protect the health of Texas families.

Preserving our water resources

Chris also believes we must protect precious water supply by ensuring that natural gas drilling and other industrial activity does not pollute ground and surface water sources. In addition, the state has to get serious about funding and implementation of the Water Plan, so that we will have adequate water resources available for future generations.
