Texas Water Needs Your Vote!

In the upcoming General Election on November 5, 2013, Texans will have an opportunity to vote on nine amendments to the Texas Constitution, including Proposition 6 concerning Texas water.

Proposition 6 – What It Is
In 2011, Texas suffered the worst, single-year drought in our state’s history. The drought, which continues today, costs Texans billions of dollars in lost income annually. And, some Texas communities struggle to maintain adequate supplies of clean, affordable water. To help address the water supply shortfalls associated with drought, Texas has a State Water Plan.

The 83rd Texas Legislature put Texas on a course to implement our state’s water plan by passing a package of water legislation: House Bill 4 by Rep. Allan Ritter and Sen. Troy Fraser; Senate Joint Resolution 1 (also known as Proposition 6) by Sen. Tommy Williams and Rep. Jim Pitts; and House Bill 1025, also by Sen. Williams and Rep. Pitts. The 83rd Legislature’s water legislation will work in concert to:

  • Set up a revolving loan program to local governmental entities – such as municipalities – that are sponsoring local water projects.
  • Dedicate a one-time investment of $2 billion to help capitalize the program, if voters approve Proposition 6, which will appear on ballots November 5, 2013.

The 83rd Texas Legislature’s support for our State Water Pan follows nearly two decades of water planning. By working with local representatives to determine current and future water needs, our state water planning process is designed to help protect public health and our economy from the impacts of drought. On November 5, 2013 Texans can vote on implementation of our State Water Plan – a one-time investment designed to address our water needs today and 50 years into the future. To find out more about where and when t vote on Proposition 6, please visit the Texas Secretary of State’s website at VoteTexas.Gov.
