The Honorable John Bryant has served in both the Texas and the United States House of Representatives, as a Democrat representing constituents in Dallas. Throughout, he was known as a staunch environmentalist, with consistently high ratings from the League of Conservation Voters and particular strength in forest protection efforts, as in his sponsorship of the Forest Biodiversity Act and his leadership in getting more than 34,000 acres in East Texas designated as wilderness. Mr. Bryant is now retired from Congress and works as an attorney on toxic tort claims and other cases.
