Water (3.00 / 1)
Interesting you use water on the graphic, as some of that will need to go to actual water.

Our state has a big concern over water availability due to a growing population, as well as growing sustained droughts. So something will need to be done on the state level to meet the growing demand with a supply that is going to become inadequate.

There are many, including at least one of my own board members on my local fresh water supply district, that just looks outside and says to himself "well it rained and we have a lake next door so everything is fine". Unfortunately that lack of foresight will get you in trouble in the coming years.

Water rights are a big deal (ask T. Boone Pickens). The pilfering of water by fracking operations only makes the situation more dire.

I hope the TX Lege has enough foresight this year and tries to plan for our future.
