    • Burgess Letter to Texas Sunset Advisory Commission

      November 30, 2010

      Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (Texas-26), sent a letter to the Texas Sunset Advisory Commission regarding its findings on the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and the Railroad Commission of Texas (RRC).

Ensuring the success of both of these agencies must be the priority of every elected official in this state." read more
