Our team here at SaveJonesStateForest.com is hard at work getting all of the details worked out for our Community Meeting on Sunday, April 9th. As we work through this all a question popped in our head-- who is really driving this bus on Senate Bill 1964?
If you remember last week Senator Creighton responded to public concerns with some proposed changes to the legislation. In his Facebook post releasing his response he clearly tells to go call Texas A&M.
Well if you have been following us you know we're pretty proactive. Off went questions to the President of TAMU and several Vice Chancellors, to include one who is our area's former Senator. We received one reply saying our question had been forwarded. But the doozy came from the President's office.
That's right folks. The organization who Senator Creighton says requested the bill and who Senator Creighton says we should contact with questions suggests we reach out to... Senator Creighton.
So, we have to ask... Who actually knows exactly what this proposed legislation does and exactly why it is needed? What is the project TAMU is seeking legislative support for?
We look forward to someone from TAMU and Senator Creighton joining us on Sunday to provide us with any information and hear from local residents.
