This video features two segments of unedited footage to be used for 24 Action News broadcasts on Austin’s KVUE-TV. The first segment covers a series of meetings regarding a concerning report released by the Texas Center for Rural Studies about the harmful effects of pesticides used for indoor extermination. The second includes footage from the Texas House of Representatives and the Seventieth Texas Legislature.
