A plan that will authorize $2 billion to finance water infrastructure projects in Texas has been approved by state voters. The money will provide low-interest loans for projects, and will enable the borrowing of even more money. "This vote marks an important first step in securing our state's future, but the work is far from over," said Laura Huffman, Texas state director of The Nature Conservancy. "We will all have to stay engaged as our communities consider strategies and projects for addressing water needs."
