In every odd-numbered year, the Texas Legislature convenes in regular session for 140 days. With this in mind, the Texas Water Journal invited Senator Charles Perry, Chairman of the Senate Agriculture, Water & Rural Affairs Committee, and Representative Lyle Larson, Chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, to discuss their priorities and visions for Texas water and the regular session of the 85th Texas Legislature. The opinions expressed in these commentaries are the opinions of the individuals and not the opinions of the Texas Water Journal or the Texas Water Resources Institute. Link to site here.
