Please contact our legislators and ask them to stop HB 3417 (Toth). If passed, the bill would strip the City of Austin of its ability to enforce important watershed protection ordinances, including the SOSOrdinance, in its extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ). The health of Barton Springs and our other surface water bodies depends on these protections. Let's not let our legislature turn Austin's ETJ into a wild west for developers.
WE NEED YOUR HELP RIGHT AWAY BECAUSE THE BILL IS SCHEDULED FOR A VOTE IN THE TEXAS HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES ON THURSDAY. PLEASE CALL ANY OR ALL OF THE REPRESENTATIVES LISTED BELOW AND TELL THEM TO STOP HB 3417.
