HB3776 by Puente (Relating to the authority of the Texas Water Development Board to approve the regional water plan for Region L and include the plan in the state water plan.), As Engrossed
The bill allows the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) to approve the regional water plan for Region L and include it in the state water plan for the five-year period beginning January 5, 2007, if the TWDB strikes existing versions of the Lower Guadalupe Water Supply Project from the Region L plan and replaces it with a new Lower Guadalupe Water Supply Project for Upstream Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority (GBRA) Needs. The bill specifies that this new project be developed by the Region L planning group in association with the GBRA. The TWDB does not anticipate any significant fiscal impact associated with this new provision.
