Abstract


Editor-in-Chief’s Note: September 1 of every odd-numbered year is the date when new legislation from the most recent session of the Texas Legislature typically goes into effect. With this in mind, the Texas Water Journal invited 4 organizations that work closely with the Texas Legislature to provide their take on the changes to Texas water policy and law that were made during the 2017 session. The opinions expressed in these summaries are the opinions of the individual organizations and not the opinions of the Texas Water Journal or the Texas Water Resources Institute.
Organizations:
  • Texas Water Conservation Association
  • Sierra Club, Lone Star Chapter
  • Texas Water Infrastructure Network
  • Texas Alliance of Groundwater Districts
