Area Legislators Deliver Letter To LSGCD Urging Delay In Adoption Of Regulatory “Management Plan” Until After November 6 Election Of A Citizen Board
Conroe, September 10 – Three highly-respected members of the Texas Legislature provided a letter to the Board of Directors of the Lone Star Groundwater Conservation District (LSGCD) today urging the Board to delay adoption of a “management plan” for the regulation of groundwater until after the November, 2018, election when a citizen-elected Board will have the opportunity to make the decision.
State Senator Robert Nichols, who represents Senatorial District 3 and partly represents Montgomery County, State Senator Brandon Creighton, who represents Senatorial District 4 and partly represents Montgomery County, and State Representative Will Metcalf of Conroe signed the letter delivered to LSGCD President Rick Moffatt and the entire LSGCD Board of Directors this afternoon.
The legislators provided a copy of the letter to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and the Texas Water Development Board so that those two state regulatory agencies would understand the “extenuating circumstances surrounding the Board’s election [to] warrant a slight delay in timing” of adoption of a management plan.”
The entire letter from Nichols, Creighton, and Metcalf to LSGCD follows.
