Representative Phil King named to the Joint Interim Committee to Study Water Desalination
AUSTIN, TX – State Representative Phil King (R-Weatherford) was named to the Joint Interim Committee to Study Water Desalination. The committee is charged with examining the status of seawater and groundwater desalination in Texas, as well as ways that expanded use of desalinated water could help meet Texas’ needs.
“Water continues to remain a top priority for Texas and for our community,” King stated. “Looking at alternative solutions to address our future water needs is critical for ensuring a strong Texas economy.”
During the 83rd Legislative Session, HB 4 was passed and signed into law by Governor Perry. This legislation established the SWIFT account to pay for needed water supply and conservation projects across Texas. Last November, Texans voted by a three-to-one margin to dedicate funding for those projects in the Texas Constitution.
The appointees will work to ensure that efforts to improve the state’s water supply are properly and effectively implemented. They will also help the full House prepare to address water matters in the next legislative session, which begins in January 2015.
State Representative Phil King represents Parker and Wise counties in the Texas House of Representatives.
