SAN ANGELO, Texas - Gov. Rick Perry on Wednesday urged Texans to vote for a $2 billion water proposition on the November ballot. Money for the effort would come by tapping Texas rainy day fund.
The constitutional amendment would focus on creating new ways of getting water to different reservoirs. One in particular is O.C. Fisher Lake, which is completely dry.
During a stopover in San Angelo, Perry said he plans to appoint a task force to be responsible for new water projects.
"If Texas is to remain the best place to live and work and to grow your business, raise your family, we must provide adequate supplies for generations to come of our water," Perry said.
Voters will head to the polls Nov. 5 to decide the fate of the water proposition and other measures.
"If Texas is to remain the best place to live and work and to grow your business, raise your family, we must provide adequate supplies for generations to come of our water," Governor Rick Perry said.
Voting takes place on November 5th.
