Two-day visit is part of environmental justice tour of impacted communities across the U.S.

Tomorrow, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Lisa P. Jackson traveled to Texas for a two-day tour last week to highlight the agency’s work safeguarding Americans from health threats such as toxic chemicals, contaminated water and air pollution, and to discuss how to ensure all Texans receive the same health and environmental protections. She was joined by Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) member U.S. Rep. Silvestre Reyes on Thursday in El Paso and CHC Chair U.S. Rep. Charles Gonzales on Friday in San Antonio for forums with local community members and students. Jackson also toured local water management and green technology innovation sites to discuss green job creation and resource conservation efforts.

The visit is a part of Jackson’s ongoing environmental justice tour, which highlights the impact of environmental issues on communities throughout the country.
