Estes to Recommend RRC Investigation. No Time to Rest!

I've been calling Estes' office to prompt him and it looks like we may get that investigation! On October 18, 2007, Tracy made a speech at the Town Hall Meeting hosted by Senator Craig Estes and listed many egregious examples where the RRC has failed to protect Texans. She requested an investigation.

I followed up with several posts on this blog and others requesting that you join us by emailing the Natural Resources Committee members. Well, it looks like your action is working. THANK YOU! But please continue applying pressure. Here is the letter I received: (click to enlarge)

Even if Estes requests an investigation, the other committee members will have to agree. Please apply pressure. Email these people and demand an investigation of Texas Railroad Commission malpractice.
