Travis Clardy, your 86th Legislative Update pleasantly mentions seven bills passed on items including four that named highways in honor of heroes from East Texas. Not mentioned was your vote in favor of permitting the pollution of Texas Waterways, HB 2771, "Relating to the authority of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality to issue permits for the discharge into water in this state of produced water, hydrostatic test water, and gas plant effluent resulting from certain oil and gas activities." With possibly 1,600 chemicals in produced water, many linked to a variety of very serious diseases, how are you serving the citizens you represent? With 40 percent of our rivers already unsafe for swimming and fishing according to TCEQ, how can you vote to make it even worse? It is unconscionable. Inexcusable! Meta Smithy Nacogdoches County
