Texas House moves to name Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center state botanical garden

Published on April 13, 2017 under CommunityImpact

The largest botanical garden and arboretum in the state may receive further acclaim by being bestowed the title of state botanical garden and arboretum. Bills filed by Austin legislators Rep. Donna Howard, D-Austin, and Sen. Kirk Watson, D-Austin, would not only honor the center with statewide acclaim, but would also allow the center to enhance its conservation, education and outreach endeavors. Howard’s bill was passed by the House in a 130-6 vote today, with several members of the House Freedom Caucus, a hyper-conservative caucus making up the majority of the no votes. The bill will move to the Senate next.
