I would like to start by stating that I understand your frustration with the current situation on Carter Avenue . I would like to commend you on your hard work and continued interested in this very important matter. Please be aware that I am currently working with Representative Burnam on his bills. Unfortunately, none of the members of the Texas House of Representatives are able to meet outside of Austin during session (January 13, 2009 - June 1, 2009) due to other committee and house obligations. The members of the Energy Committee understand that these issues are very important to the citizens of Tarrant County and the entire state. . All members are required to be in Austin when the House meets in session, they will be unable to be in Fort Worth to meet in a committee hearing. All committee hearings during April and May will have to be in Austin . If there are citizens who are unable to attend those hearings in person, I recommend that they contact the committee members by letter or e-mail to express their interest and concerns about oil and gas drilling or any other issue. You can look up the committee members contact information on this website. Once again thank you for interest in this very serious matter.
