The League of Independent Voters of Texas is holding a statewide conference call next Saturday (January 25 at 10 am) to discuss efforts to bring the issues of eminent domain abuse, public safety and protection of waterways into the 2014 state election cycle debates.

If you want to join the call, please reply to this message — we’ll send you details.


Letter to Attorney General Greg Abbott:

Texans only please sign & help us get it out across Texas, including through Facebook!

Public Citizen just sent out a similar online letter to their supporters AND this letter to the Attorney General.  The letter explains more precisely what the safety inspection (or lack thereof) issues are.

In addition, TransCanada is telling emergency response personnel in rural areas that it’s just “crude” coming through the line. This is deceptive and dangerous. Go to this site:  http://www.tarsandsprotectionleague.org/ to see why.

The online letters are flying into the AG’s office but we NEED MORE!  PLEASE HELP!

Hope to “see” you all next Saturday at 10 am via conference call.

This release was sent to statewide media. Please consider writing a letter to the editor about this of your local newspaper.

This Letter to Attorney General Greg Abbott from Public Citizen provides more details as to the safety issues.

  1. I cannot see many republicans remaining in office as they rape texas landowners with eminent domain. They really need to leave office so texas can remain in a better state. I continue to wonder how any crude or byproduct can be exported considering our ban on exporting, but graft and corruption is locking in the corrupted behavior of the worst players.I’m ashamed to be an honest american in a world of stupidity that is destroying Gaia for no other reason than to destroy for personal gain and ignore any consequences even killing children with proprietary ingredients. Humane behavior from our congress exists only to bullshit everyone into cooperating to further corrupted goals to enrich the corporate and congressional pockets of those promoting fraudulently promoted graft.

  2. Well, Gary, tell us how you really feel!

    Seriously, we are in quite a mess. We feel, it’s only a matter of time before there’s a major ecological disaster in East Texas.

    We are not just battling the problems for landowners and water posed by the Keystone XL, we also have the Seaway pipeline (owned by Enbridge and Enterprise) on the western side of East Texas. AND, there’s the Pegasus (owned by Exxon) traversing most of East Texas, currently shut down due to the terrible spill in Mayflower, AR last March. They were as unprepared as much of East Texas is.

    Please pass on this letter to all you know. If Abbott does not get a clue, we will have at least alerted citizens, media and local officials.

    If you want to help out, please call or email us – go to our contact section.

    Thank you! Linda Curtis
