Education, Medicaid, water and transportation issues flood Capitol
Despite periodic drizzle, the Capitol grounds were flooded by advocates. Each voiced concerns over issues of importance to be taken up by the 83rd Texas Legislature. "I think the drought has magnified the needs of the water challenges facing our state moving forward," said Scott Norman with the Texas Association of Builders. While transportation issues and funding the state water plan are top concerns for builders, Norman says they're issues of critical importance to all Texans. "As we are trying to meet the housing needs of Texas moving forward, as our population continues to grow, as our economy continues to grow, water will be vital."
