Farmers Union takes a stand on water issues

Members of the Texas Farmers Union took a stand regarding the state’s water issue during the union’s 112th annual convention in Corpus Christi.

Among the Texas Farmers Union 2014 Policy Statements approved were:

•To urge the state of Texas to push for better technologies in the desalinization of ocean water, recycling of wastewater, and recycling and conservation of fracking water.

•To urge strict conservation of water for recreational purposes.

•To strongly urge that any funding for the above water plans should not be taken from the state’s Education Budget.

The Texas Farmers Union strongly supports that in the event farmers’, ranchers’, or landowners’ water is confiscated by the state, federal, or any other entity, they will be duly compensated for that year, future loss of production, decrease in property values, and any other financial hardship that arises from this action.

The Texas Farmers Union (TFU) believes, Sims said, “that Sequestration was a threat to the Congress to force them to work for a defined reduction in expenditures, not believing it would ever be implemented. These cuts have weakened the ability of some agencies to perform their duties; therefore, TFU urges the immediate repeal of Sequestration.”

Since the Texas Legislature did not adequately fund Texas public education, the Delegate Body of TFU’s convention requests the governor and the Legislature of the state of Texas to adequately fund Texas Public Education.

“Several other issues were addressed by the delegates,” said Sims, “and they can be found at TexasFarmersUnion.org.”

Also during the convention, Sims was re-elected to a 10th consecutive two-year term as president of the Texas Farmers Union. Sims, a family farmer and cattle producer from Sweetwater, was first elected in 1996 to lead the Texas family farm and ranch group.

The delegates also re-elected Mike Oldham, a farmer and cattle producer from Smithville, to his sixth term as vice president. Also elected as district directors were Pam Oldham of Shamrock, Christi Barnett of Merkel, and Terry Priesmeyer of El Campo.
