Governor Perry - Sign SB 198!Join the thousands of Texans, and many of your neighbors, who want to give homeowners the chance to save water and money! Send a message to the Governor and ask him to sign SB 198 today!
The Texas Legislature passed SB 198, a landmark bill called for by Clean Water Action that would remove the ability of homeowner associations in Texas to ban drought-resistant landscaping, or xeriscaping. Many or most of Texas' HOAs – estimated to number around 25,000 -- have rules in place that require turf grass in all or most of homeowner's front yard. SB 198 is a compromise that will still allow HOAs to give prior approval to, and lay down guidelines for, revisions to a homeowner's front yard, as long as they do not unreasonably restrict or ban xeriscaping.
Now we only need Governor Rick Perry to sign the bill so that thousands of Texans can save water – and money – on their own property if they choose to do so. Send a message to the Governor today! You can also call him and double your impact - (512) 463-2000
For clean water,
David Foster, State Director
