Proposition 8 - Water Stewardship Amendment - Vote YES
Texas League of Conservation Voters - Education Fund online
Texas' constitutional amendment elections don't always grab the headlines, but this year's election is one that includes "a must vote yes" proposition.

Proposition 8 - Water Stewardship Amendment (TLCVEF recommends a YES vote.)

Access to a clean, reliable water supply is critical to every Texas family, business and community. How we ensure Texans are prepared to meet future water needs is a critical public policy concern. The Water Stewardship Amendment (Proposition 8 on the Nov. 8 ballot) will help Texas:

Secure a reliable supply of water for our children and grandchildren
Protect water quality in our streams, rivers and aquifers
Increase our water supply, which will help keep water rates affordable
Enhance water conservation by encouraging more efficient water usage

Proposition 8 was passed unanimously by the Texas Legislature and had the support of both Republicans and Democrats. It's bipartisan and enjoys broad based support from Texans statewide, including farmers, ranchers, landowners, taxpayers organizations and conservation groups like TLCVEF.
