Little attention on state water conservation
from San Angelo Standard Times
Out of about 250 bills put through pre-filing this month for the upcoming Texas Legislature, only one regarded water conservation. The single bill comes after the worst single-year drought in Texas' recorded history, after the Texas Water Development Board specified the need for $53 billion in funding for water projects over the next 50 years, and after a West Texas Legislative Summit dedicated to the issue.
