Groups Decide It's Time to Replace Texas' Top Environmental Official With Someone That Is Actually Concerned With the Environment

This article explains the disapproval that several environmental groups have expressed for the chairmen of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, Kathleen Hartnett White, and their attempts to get her out of office. These groups claim that her efforts towards issues such as clean air and global warming have been less that sufficient. I found this article to be interesting and important for a number of reasons. First, it is a great example of how watchdog groups can call attention to government officials that are not properly performing their job. Furthermore, it shows how efforts can be made, such as the "Get White Out" campaign, to put pressure on top government officials (Governor Rick Perry in this case) to act in accordance with desires of the public. Finally, Governor Perry has not yet decided on who will replace White, and I believe it is important that our state's top environmental official be someone with stronger environmental concern.
