What Can the Texas Lege Do About Water?

What can the upcoming Texas legislature do about water, where will it find the funds if it decides to act? Those were some of the hot-button questions on tap at a recent Texas Tribune summit on water issues at Texas State University.

Tribune Editor-In-Chief Evan Smith sat down with two state legislators, Rep. Allan Ritter (R-Nederland), chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, and state Sen. Glenn Hegar (R-Katy), who sites on the Senate Natural Resources Committee. You can watch their conversation above.
