Green Texas Act of 2021

TX Legislative Representative

The Green Texas Act of 2021 is how we fight the climate crisis.

A healthy environment is a human right. When our environment is harmed, so is our health. We need a system that puts our health first, not Big Oil and corporate profits. We call upon our local and state representatives to support the Green Texas Act of 2021--a Green New Deal for Texas.


  1. No later than January 1, 2030, Texas must receive 100% of its energy supply from renewable resources. This will create many good paying jobs.
  2. Demand greater fuel efficiency, including other ways to lower carbon emissions, for all motor vehicles. This will make Texas air cleaner.
  3. Heavily invest in mass transit systems locally, regionally, and statewide. This will ease your morning commute as well as lower our dependence on oil.
  4. Create the Civilian Conservation Corps of Texas, tasking it with reforestation and other natural carbon capture techniques. This will make Texas even more beautiful.
  5. Protect Texas’ natural resources, including water, from over-extraction and abuse, including giving critical ecological resources legal rights. This will protect our common heritage.
  6. Reinvigorate Texas’ regulatory agencies, including the Railroad Commission. This will put the power back to the people.
  7. End all tax exemptions, local and otherwise, for fossil fuel production facilities. This boosts the market for renewable energy.
  8. Create a fund so that rural communities are able to afford recycling programs. This will conserve natural resources.
  9. State-wide ban on single-use plastic products.
