Texas lawmakers keep pressing for urgent water action
from The Texas Tribune
House Speaker Joe Straus, R-San Antonio, has developed a stump speech about water that he's giving frequently these days. "Water policy and planning in this next session is absolutely critical," he told the Texas Tribune's water-focused festival on Oct. 29. Given the rapid growth of the state — Texas' population is projected to increase by about 80 percent by 2060 — the Legislature has an "obligation" to think beyond the next few years, and to make sure that cities — he named as examples Austin, Midland and Wichita Falls — have enough water.
