The Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association urges ranchers and landowners to vote in favor of Proposition 6 during the Nov. 5 Constitutional Election. Texans can participate in early voting, which runs through Friday, Nov. 1.

Proposition 6 is a constitutional amendment providing for the creation of the State Water Implementation Fund for Texas and the State Water Implementation Revenue Fund for Texas. According to an Oct. 16 Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers press release, the funds will help finance priority water projects, including rural water projects, to ensure Texas has adequate water resources for the future.

“Texas is still coping with a historic drought that has left many ranchers and areas in rural Texas struggling to find adequate water supplies,” said Pete Bonds, rancher and cattle raisers president. “At the same time that our water supplies are decreasing, our population is increasing. We need to ensure we preserve and conserve the water we do have so there is enough for all Texans, those in rural and urban areas.”

Bonds adds that Proposition 6 sets aside $2 billion already in the Rainy Day Fund for priority water projects, 10 percent specifically for rural water projects and 20 percent for conservation projects including agriculture conservation projects.

“Now is the time to ensure Texas continues to thrive well into the future,” Bonds said. “It’s crucial we pass Proposition 6.”
