On April 16th 2021, Representative Barbara Gervin-Hawkins contacted TMARA requesting a testimony for the April 20th public hearing, in favor of House Bill 605, which adopts a healthy and safe school water plan in public schools to test for copper and lead. Roughly 25,000 schools across the state have not undergone water inspections, and this bill addresses the concern by requiring each school district to adopt a plan.
Member Testimony – House Bill 605
Many in our industry test for environmental hazards, including lead. Testifying during this hearing has been another opportunity to demonstrate our work and offer solutions as the leading trade association for the mold assessment and remediation industry in Texas. Education and taking action are among top priorities in efforts to build and support our industry while protecting consumers. Please join us in supporting H.B. 605 by watching the testimony from President Mike Marshall below, download a copy of the speech transcript and share with your networks.
This is another step in the right direction as we continue to establish ourselves and foster direct lines of communication with our legislative branches.
