Your letter could go something like this...
It has been brought to my attention that your committee is currently reviewing and about to vote on recommendations to the state environmental agency, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, regarding measures to be taken to clean up our air.
As a DFW citizen, I am willing to do my fair share to clean the air for our metroplex ffor the sake of the health for our families and our children. However, I also hope you will demand that significant reductions from all sources of pollution be included in the new clean air plan. As a member of our local Clean Air Steering Committee, I am asking you to:
- Develop the best clean air plan possible so that the DFW area can clean up sufficiently to reach attainment;
- Ensure that the neighboring cement kilns in Ellis County make up to 90% emission reductions by utilizing proven smog-reducing pollution technology;
- Make the antiquated East Texas coal-fired power plants clean up - making significant reductions in dirty emissions;
- Ask the state environmental agency to consider that strict permits be issued on the proposed seven, new coal-fired power plants which are now in their application phase across
Significant pollution-producing industrial sources need to do their fair share to clean the air while we as individual drivers, small business owners and homeowners are being asked to do the same.
Thank you for your hard work in creating this plan with a sense of fairness. Our health, welfare, and our communities sustainability are depending on the decisions you will make.
