Texans will soon vote on nine proposed amendments to the Texas Constitution. Proposition 6 would establish a water implementation fund and if approved, the legislature has also authorized a one-time, $2 billion appropriation from the economic stabilization fund into the new fund to support the water supply projects detailed in the state water plan.

The Texas Water Development Board is the state agency tasked with developing the state water plan, and it has provided voters with FAQs on Proposition 6.

Another easy way to stay informed about Proposition 6 is to follow the ScoopIt page, Funding Texas Water, where the Texas Water Resources Institute posts relevant articles. Dr. Calvin Finch, director of the Water Conservation and Technology Center, also recently wrote about the proposition.

Early voting ends Nov. 1 and election day is Nov. 5.
