The Legislature

TAGD closely follows legislation that may affect the operation of groundwater conservation districts and the status of groundwater use and conservation in the state of Texas. TAGD staff and Officers serve as information resources to the Texas Legislature and notify TAGD members of important legislation and hearings throughout the session. TAGD District members may serve on the Legislative Committee, which reviews pending legislation and, in certain instances, may guide TAGD in taking a position on a bill. At the end of session, TAGD members receive a summary of adopted groundwater-related legislation and an analysis of how it may impact groundwater conservation districts.
