Preserve W.G. Jones State Forest
This petition had 2,944 supporters
The Jones State Forest is at risk for commercial development. Please sign this petition in favor of protecting this beautiful nature forest and recreational park and prevent this bill from being passed in the Texas senate.
Let's not allow them to destroy this forest for yet more apartment complexes, gas stations and strip mall centers.
Below is language taken directly from Senate Bill 1964 introduced by senator Brandon Creighton:
Sec. 88.1085. USE OF LAND IN JONES STATE FOREST.
(a) Notwithstanding any other provision in this subchapter, the board may use or lease land in Jones State Forest for the construction of buildings or improvements for multipurpose uses, including academic, research, and private commercial uses, when in its judgment it is advantageous to the state to do so.
(b) Net profits accruing from use or lease of land in Jones State Forest under the authority of this section shall be used at the discretion of the board.
