Together We Made a Difference for Texas Parks
by Helen Drummond, Executive Director

The closing of the 84th Legislative Session marked a major milestone for Texas parks, Texans and the birds and other wildlife that mean so much to our quality of life. Because of the hard, persistent work of so many across the state, including Houston Audubon members who heeded the call to contact their legislative representatives in support of House Bill 158, 100% of future proceeds derived from the Sporting Goods Sales Tax (SGST) are now statutorily dedicated for use to address the needs of local and state parks.

This spring, HB 158 passed the House and Senate and was signed by the Governor. It goes into effect September 1, 2015. [More]
