Times-a-changin' at Consumers Union in Austin

The Austin office of Consumers Union, which has lobbied at the Texas capitol on consumer issues for more than two decades, will no longer focus exclusively on Texas or lobby the Texas Legislature day-to-day, according to this article in the Dallas Morning News. They will be especially missed on healthcare, financial services, housing and open records issues. My wife Kathy works for Consumers Union's Austin office. She stopped working on Texas-specific issues last year and now runs their national e-advocacy campaigns.
