WHEREAS Texas created regional water and transportation plans for development of urban areas and adjacent rural counties;

  • Texas is the home of many experienced scientists and engineers in hydrogeology, transportation, and public health;
  • General property tax revenue is a major source of funds for public institutions of higher learning, public transportation, and management of the public drinking water supply;
  • Surface and underground drinking water supplies are commonly polluted with urban and industrial wastes, that were released into the surface water or injected underground;

BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED THAT the Texas Democratic Party supports:

  • Good management of the Regional Water and Transportation Plans to create and maintain high quality public health and protect the public drinking water supply in urban, suburban, and rural areas.
  • Appropriate and high public health science standards for regulating both surface and underground drinking water supplies in urban, suburban, and rural areas.
  • Green-space for parks, recreation, floodwater management, and wetlands protection.
  • An environmental economic formula for water and transportation projects funded with public revenue, that includes an environmental assessment to protect public health as well as public funds.
