Elections: Prop. 6 Explained

A closer look at the constitutional amendment about the state's water.
Early voting is underway across the state of Texas.

While there are some local races in Midland and Ector Counties, there are also some state-wide constitutional amendments up for a vote.

On the ballot, each of the nine propositions are explained with a one-sentence description.

Proposition 6 reads, "The constitutional amendment providing for the creation of the State Water Implementation Fund for Texas and the State Water Implementation Revenue Fund for Texas to assist in the financing of priority projects in the state water plan to ensure the availability of adequate water resources."

"It's not used to loan money," Klonower said, "it's used to make the loans that we give to utilities cheaper. That's what utilities and communities have told us they need to act as the incentive and the catalyst for them to start these water supply projects that we know they need."
