The Texas League of Conservation Voters handed out report cards to state lawmakers Tuesday and Rick Noriega gets A+ w/96%. He was absent on a few of the votes or, I’m betting, he would be 100%.
From the Star-Telegram:
The average House score was 56 percent, according to the organization. It said the average Republican score was 32 percent and the average Democratic score was 84 percent.
Environmental issues are a real life or death concern for Wise County voters. It’s no wonder. Look at what our representatives and area representative received.

Phil King is WRONG, WRONG, WRONG for Wise County. Could we trade Phil for Lon?
