Just moments ago a bad bill on eminent domain and pipelines was pulled on a point of order in the House. Nice!
ON THE WATER FRONT:
Read this piece in the Austin-American Statesman, then call or contact your legislators and ask them to stand tall on this issue. Legislators can focus on conserving water first! For pennies on the dollar, fixing leaky pipes and getting everyone — the municipalities and large agricultural entities, in particular — to conserve, must be done now. Do not spend tax dollars on building pipelines to drain rural Texas dry, potentially doing great harm to our aquifers and landowners. And for the small towns that need help, our understanding is that there are low interest loans available to them already. If someone tells you differently, we’d like to hear what they have to say. The bottom line is that building costly infrastructure won’t make it rain. It doesn’t appear we’re going to get much of that over the next few years, until the lege meets again.
Plan now dudes in the legislature! More soon…
