There is a bill currently working its way through the State Legislature to limit liability of utility companies for land they make available for public recreational use.
IE: passage of the bill will make it much easier for Houston area municipalities to work to put hike & bike paths on utility right of ways, big green swaths that currently just have power line towers, etc.
This is significant because most available trails in the Houston area run east-west along bayous, many of the north-south utility ROWs would connect existing paths into a grid. The photo attached below comes from here.
Whether you live in the Houston area or not, please contact your Texas Representative & Senator in support of these bills in a gesture of solidarity with your fellow Texas riders.
