AUSTIN -- State Representative Dawnna Dukes (Austin) has been recognized by The Wind Coalition for her support of wind energy legislation and her advocacy of the industry's growth.
"I am honored to be recognized by the Wind Coalition, and I look forward to continuing to explore and develop alternative energy sources that will improve energy options for Texans," Rep. Dukes said.
This recognition not only identifies her outstanding support for wind energy issues, but also for her encouragement of the industry's growth and acknowledgment of the positive environmental and economic effects these policies will have on our state. In the midst of rising concerns over greenhouse gases and coal-burning power plants, the cleaner, renewable resource, wind power, is flourishing. Because of the dedication of policy makers such as Rep. Dukes to protect high energy standards, Texans can breathe easier and ultimately pay less for their power than they would if sole reliance on expensive natural gas was continued. As a result of her support, along with other policy-makers, the wind energy market in Texas is now the largest in the nation. It has brought Texas more jobs, and has promoted a cleaner environment.
