Our veterans served honorably overseas, taking the fight to those set on doing us harm. Now, many of our vets are returning home sick with rare cancers and lung disorders. The cause? Open burn pits operated on our military bases.

Instead of properly incinerating our military waste, toxic materials were doused in fuel and set ablaze in open burn pits. Dangerous chemicals were aerosolized and transported deep into our service members' lungs as the toxic plumes washed over our bases each day. This threat is the new Agent Orange. 

With over 1.6 million veterans, Texas has the second-highest total population in the country. Creating a comprehensive registry of those affected by toxic burn pit exposure helps get our veterans the benefits they and their families desperately need. Last legislative session, a registry was created, but now it needs funding to operate. A bill by Rep. Abel Herrero fixes this problem. HB 3957 creates specialty Texas license plates to honor burn pit victims. This bill will raise awareness about this important issue and fund the registry.
