March 25, 2011 | San Antonio Tree Ordinance, Japan Earthquake

Watch the full episode. See more Texas Week.

Former Chief Justice of the 4th Court of Appeals and two-time San Antonio Mayor Phil Hardberger debate the issues of a Senate Bill that, if approved, would stop enforcement of the city’s tree ordinance as it applies to the Extra Territorial Jurisdiction (ETJ) of a city. Fears of tree “clear cutting” prompted San Antonio to adopt a strict ordinance to preserve trees in the city and in areas that could someday be annexed. Now, a Senate Bill may end that law. We’ll hear the arguments against the bill and from those in support; Past President of the San Antonio Builder’s Association, Michael Moore.

Japan is still reeling from the Earthquake, Tsunami and from nuclear facilities leaking radiation. As a result, goods and services that San Antonio and Texas relies on are being delayed. What is the impact the crisis is having on our lives now and in the future and will we feel the impact in our wallets? International Business Expert Raul Rodriguez from the University of the Incarnate Word joins us as does Craig Mullenbach with Toyota Texas.
