Reporting on the fate of water-related bills in the regular legislative session, Asher Price of the Austin American-Statesman writes that the Lower Colorado River Authority came out of the session a winner after legislators failed to pass a measure that would have limited its water-planning flexibility. Price notes that the session was otherwise dominated by the Legislature’s decision to create a water infrastructure bank that will draw $2 billion from the state’s Rainy Day Fund, if voters approve the measure.
