This study, Industrial Upset Pollution: Who Pays the Price?, is the first to examine the impact of unpermitted air emissions on both human health in Texas and on healthcare costs to the state’s taxpayers. This study also evaluates the role of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) in protecting the state’s residents when polluting industries far exceed the emission allowances in their permits through emission events, otherwise called “upsets.”

But that means we depend on the generosity of concerned citizens like you for the resources to fight on behalf of the public interest. If you would like to help us in our fight, click here.
