Bio

Since 1984, Public Citizen's Texas State Office has concerned itself with: environmental enforcement policies, global warming, promoting clean and renewable energy, product safety, nuclear safety, medical safety, auto safety/quality, pesticide safety, insurance reforms, campaign finance/ethics issues, improving state government agency operations and fair trade policies. We have trained over 300 interns and have worked with/mentored numerous grassroots organizations. We're currently working to block Texas' five pending coal plants and six pending nuclear power units. We are also engaged in conversation with several electric cooperatives and municipal utilities to adopt solar and energy efficiency programs, and are working to strengthen and promote the Waxman/Markey federal climate change bill.
