We recommend that you attend this meeting tomorrow night and ask Senator Campbell about Vista Ridge. Though this meeting is focused on issues related to the Trinity Aquifer, Senator Campbell needs to hear from her constituents on the Vista Ridge water grab. Details: Monday, August 17, 6 to 8 pm @ Wimberley Community Center, 14208 Ranch Road 12. Details here.
Vista Ridge, the $3.4 billion game-changer in movement of groundwater, is still in play. Easements are being sought for the 142 mile pipeline from Burleson to Bexar counties. On the night before the end of the session, Senator Campbell was pushing hard for a bill amendment to enhance financing opportunities for Vista Ridge AND over-turning the rights of county judges in the 7 counties traversed by Vista Ridge, to a say in the matter.
The attached video of the floor fight is a must-see. Senator Campbell, in the face of clear and outspoken opposition from mostly Republican colleagues, coudn't let it go.
Please note that the League of Independent Voters is holding our own meeting on Vista Ridge on September 22. Details here.
Hoping to hear from you after tomorrow night and to see you on September 22!
