Thank you to everyone who signed our successful petition calling for transmission lines to connect wind and solar power to our cities.
The plan approved by the state PUC will provide affordable energy for Texas families, cleaner air, new "green jobs," and a stronger state economy.

This week we celebrate the 18th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
We celebrate how it has served the 43 million Americans with disabilities, and served every American by bringing the laws of our nation more in line with our principles.
We also celebrate what happened prior to passage of the ADA, and the thousands of Americans with disabilities who organized, mobilized and insisted that they receive the same rights and opportunities as other Americans.
In that same spirit, Texans must come together to continue working for affordable health care, job opportunities, fair housing and access to education.
