State Policies of the Texas Farm Bureau, 2005
The first paragraph of the Environmental Issues section reads as follows:
Environmental Issues 143
We recommend TCEQ (Texas Commission on Environmental Quality) not issue permits for new coal-fired power plants unless they meet environmental standards equal to or better than a gas fired plant with latest technology, meaning the most stringent controls, categorized as "lowest achievable emission rate." Should a coal-fired plant be permitted with the latest technology and meet clean air standards, pollutants extracted should not be buried in critical areas that could harm our environment.
