On October 24, 2019, Comal County Conservation Alliance (CCCA) and Greater Edwards Aquaifer Alliance (GEAA) cosponsored a Town Hall with State Representatives Kyle Biedermann (R-District 73) and Erin Zwiener (D-District 45), where they shared important information on Propositions 2, 5, and 8. These three propositions will be on the November ballot and both representatives support them.
Proposition 2: Authorizes the Texas Water Board to issue bonds for water and sewer projects in economically distressed areas.
Proposition 5: Ensures the existing sporting goods sales tax will go to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and Texas Historical Commission for protecting natural areas, water quality, and history.
Proposition 8: Creates funding for infrastructure for drainage, flood mitigation, and flood control projects, including “green infrastructure” projects, which use undeveloped land for flood mitigation.
