Rosa Parks today took her place among the giants of American history when her statue was unveiled on Capitol Hill. It stands proudly in Statuary Hall, with two statues from each state. 

Parks, of course, was the Alabama woman who, in 1955, refused to go to the back of a bus, when ordered to do so by the driver. Her defiance sparked a key chapter in America's long civil rights struggle. Hers is an amazing story - here is West Wing Reports's account of it.

Annd to provide Texans a means to do their part, the state has offered various renewable enerrgy incentives which appear in various forms such as propety tax rebates
or incentives based on performance. Especially, the fee is stored by ions as in a
battery. Zoning laws vary from city to city and they
determine whether or not you are allowed to doo your own installation.
