Governor Rick Perry visited the shore of Lake Lavon in Mid-October bolstering support for proposition six in the November balloting. With Prop 6, as its come into being, asks voters to approve a state constitutional amendment creating a fund to procure more water. The amendment language reads:

The constitutional amendment providing for the creation of the State Water Implementation Fund for Texas and the State Water Implementation Revenue Fund for Texas to assist in the financing of priority projects in the state water plan to ensure the availability of adequate water resources;
or for our bilingual voters:
La enmienda constitucional que establece la creación del Fondo Estatal de Implementación del Agua para Texas y del Fondo Estatal de Ingresos de Implementación del Agua para Texas (SWIRF – por sus siglas en inglés) para asistir en el financiamiento de proyectos prioritarios en el plan estatal de agua para asegurar la disponibilidad de recursos de agua adecuados.

The fact remains that with forecast for a Texas population explosion over the next 40 years, the state will have to gather more water. In the long run, Texas will face having to dam more rivers, eminent domain more property and build more lakes. Texans will be asked to conserve more water, reduce usage, and before it be comes a law, reduce the amount of water drinking grasses and replace lawns with xeriscaped landscaping. The alternative is to do nothing, let the population increase and import water. The cost associated with the alternative will put the the price on a gallon of water higher than the cost of a gallon at the fueling station. That cost - will be passed along to the consumer.
