Legislative Update 2018
Senator Perry, Lubbock, has produced an excellent Interim Report title “2017 Hurricane Harvey Response to the 86th Legislature”. The Interim Report builds on the State Flood Assessment Report now available in draft, from the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB).
The report recommends funding the development of a State Flood Plan, with the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) taking the lead on coordinating and overseeing regional flood control planning over the next five years. It points out that “TWDB has been a leader in flood projects with local communities. As the state agency most familiar with stakeholders, TWDB will be able to manage the organization of the groups, technical assistance, and final submissions of flood control plans.”
