IMPORTANT HEARING TUESDAY 1:30 p.m. in AUSTIN.
There are two competing bills addressing common carrier pipeline designations currently working their way through the Texas House. WHY? Well, because, one bill favors the industry, HB 2748, authored by Rep. Tryon Lewis and one attempts to create an objective process and oversight, HB 3547, authored by Rep. Rene Oliveira.
It is critical that Texas Landowners attend this hearing and share with the committee their concerns about the common carrier pipeline designation process (or lack thereof).
Landowners need notice. Landowners need access to the courts. Texans deserve agencies that insure the industries they regulate follow the law. WHAT: Business & Industry Committee Hearing on HB 3547 WHEN: 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 9, 2013 (or when the House stands adjourned, if that is later than 1:30 p.m.) WHERE: E2.014, Texas Capitol Extension
