Public Citizen's Texas Office on Your Behalf


The renewable energy win of the summer was passage in Texas of legislation that will double the goal for the amount of wind power, solar power and other forms of renewable energy in the state’s energy mix.

“This new goal is the next step toward Texas realizing its potential to be the nation’s leading producer of renewable energy,” said Tom “Smitty” Smith, director of Public Citizen’s Texas office. “Wind power, in particular, will play a major role in meeting our future energy needs.”

Get details about the good news in the press release.

Since 1984, Public Citizen's Texas State Office has concerned itself with: environmental enforcement policies, global warming, promoting renewable/clean 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 175 interns and have worked with/mentored numerous grassroots organizations.

When you turn on your lights, file an insurance claim, file a complaint about your doctor or lawyer, inquire about political contributions to your legislators, buy gas, rent a car, buy or recycle a product, appear before a judge at an administrative agency, see a pesticide warning sign or hear about a dangerous product – your rights have been affected by the work of Public Citizen’s Texas office.

Send Smitty and the Texas office thanks for all the work they do.
