There were multiple discussion and multiple bills on the water funding plan, I served on appropriations.” “The only plan that was made available was voting was for transfer of rainy day funds to fund the water projects.” “Sometimes you vote no in a committee hearing just to be able to have debate on the floor, and I thought that was a big enough issue that it needed more debate. So yes there were a couple of no votes in order to have discussion and debate.” Perry went on to explain the different bills and water funding options that were available outside of funding via the rainy day fund and that he felt using other resources already available would provide better options. “So on the two bills, in the final analysis, that mattered, regarding water and actual implementation of, I was a “yes”, I was an affirmative, I never was never going to vote for water.”
