In November, we'll be voting on this proposed amendment to the Texas Constitution:
The constitutional amendment creating the Texas water fund to assist in financing water projects in this state
Should Texans vote yes on this amendment in November? Definitely. This fund will shore up water systems that have been stretched due to explosive population growth and a historic drought.
As reported by the San Antonio Express, Texas has more than 165,000 miles of water pipes that have degraded after years of neglect, resulting in an uptick in boil water notices, particularly in rural Texas, but also in places like Austin. This session, Texas lawmakers set aside $1B over the next two years to fix the pipes and develop new water sources. According to experts, it’s not enough, but it heads us in the right direction. State water officials estimate that we’ll need to invest $80B to ensure there’s enough water for the state by 2070, largely to make up for depleting aquifers.
Vote YES on this amendment to finance water projects in Texas. Michelle LoweSolis BCDP Communications Co-Chair and State Democratic Executive Committee Member (SD25)
