Texas And Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association Urges Texans to Approve Proposition 6


A cattle raisers’ group is urging Texans to approve a proposition in an upcoming statewide Constitutional election.

The Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association is urging ranchers and landowners to vote in favor of Proposition 6 during the November 5th Constitutional election.

Proposition 6 would provide for the creation of the State Water Implementation Fund for Texas and the State Water Implementation Revenue Fund for Texas.

The TSCRA says those funds would help finance priority water projects, including rural water projects, to ensure that Texas has adequate water resources for the future.

“Texas is still coping with a historic drought that has left many ranchers and areas in rural Texas struggling to find adequate water supplies,” said Pete Bonds, Rancher and TSCRA president. “At the same time our water supplies are decreasing, our population is increasing. We need to ensure we preserve and conserve the water we do have so there is enough for all Texans, those in rural and urban areas.”

Proposition 6 would set aside $2 billion already in the Rainy Day Fund for priority water projects. Specifically, 10 percent would be set aside for rural water projects and 20 percent for conservation projects.

Early voting for the November 5th Constitutional Election begins on October 21st and ends on November 1st.
