Texas Coastal and Marine Council


The attached report was prepared for the Texas Coastal and Marine Council in order to pinpoint the major environmental issues which may arise during the constitutional revision session of the Legislature in 1974. The report cites relevant sections of the present constitution; discusses the recommendations of the Constitutional Revision Commission concerning these provisions; identifies new environmentally-oriented proposals considered by the Commission; and includes environmental language in other state constitutions. This report is the first in a series of summaries of important constitutional revision issues which will be published by the Texas Coastal and Marine Council. These reports will be distributed in an effort to contribute to the knowledge of the Legislature and the people of Texas concerning constitutional revision and will be directed at providing information rather than reaching conclusions.
