TakeBack bill signed in Texas
Governor Rick Perry signed Senate Bill 329
into law – unlike in 2009, when Perry vetoed a similar bill.
Advocates count this as one of the rare environmental victories
during the 2011 Texas Legislative Session.
SB 329, sponsored by Senator Kirk Watson
(D-Austin) and Representative Warren Chisum (R-Pampa), requires
manufacturers selling TVs in Texas to offer free, convenient
recycling programs for Texas residents.
