Press Release

Rep. Chip Roy released the following statement Saturday evening: 

Since learning Saturday morning about the truck washed away in the Pedernales River, my team and I have been in constant contact with Gillespie County, as well as state and federal officials. We will continue to gather information and monitor the situation. I would like to hear the parties involved, particularly Kinder Morgan, explain how this is supposed to instill confidence when they continue to leave a trail of troubling circumstances in regards to their activity in the Hill Country. This is about demonstrating respect for landowners‘ property rights, access to water, and safety in the area of Texas they have chosen to put this pipeline.
