On June 30, 2016 the City of San Antonio became the largest city in the nation to pass a ban of coal tar pavement sealers. These videos contain an overview of the City staff findings; comments by the several Council members including its sponsor, Councilman Ron Nirenberg; and statements from supporters and opponents of the ban.

The key statement came from the ban's sponsor, Ron Nirenberg:

"The reason why we're doing this today is that science demands that, as it relates to public health, that we adjust public policy when necessary."

Unfortunately not all the statements were supportive of the ban.

Do you ever wish you could have a buzzer when you hear someone speak publicly who is, at best, misinformed? Well this video of the Council proceedings has buzzers and comments included. No disrespect to the historic aspects of this ban or the Council is intended, but these statements could not just stand unchallenged.
