The "regulars" in both major parties continue to push an incredibly costly special interest agenda, despite the major cuts affecting ordinary Texans.

2. The same profiteers are pushing for costly pipelines to move groundwater to unsustainable (though very profitable) developments along the IH-35 Corridor where there is insufficient water, particularly in Hays County down to San Antonio.

1. Additional funds for controversial water projects (like the Trans-Texas Water Highway water pipelines) should be put on hold until public hearings are held throughout the state. Hearings should also address the fracking issue and serious conservation efforts. Sign the petition now and share it!
