Governor Greg Abbott has appointed Catarina Gonzales to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a term set to expire August 31, 2029. TCEQ protects the state's public health and natural resources consistent with sustainable economic development.

“With a wealth of experience in environmental work and leadership roles, Catarina Gonzales is the right choice to lead TCEQ as the agency’s newest commissioner,” said Governor Abbott. “I thank Commissioner Emily Lindley for her decade of service to TCEQ and her tireless work to address our environmental quality needs across Texas. I look forward to continuing to work with Catarina to ensure that our state’s resources—and the health of Texans—remain protected as we continue to build an even brighter future for all Texans.”
