In Dry West Texas, Hoping the Lege Will Act to Fund Water Projects

The Texas state legislature meets next week for another session, and there’s a sense that this time around, serious measures will be taken to fund water projects. Texas is, after all, an ever-growing state in the midst of an extended dry spell.

Hopes that the lege will act to fund water projects are high in West Texas towns like Spur, where Texas Tribune reporters Alana Rocha and Justin Dehn visited recently. But even if lawmakers do act, some in Spur aren’t convinced it will be enough to make a real difference for small Texas towns like theirs. You can watch their video report above.
