(Sept. 27, 2013) -- The UTSA College of Public Policy, UTSA Student Government Association (SGA) and the League of Women Voters will host a discussion about proposed Texas constitutional amendment Proposition 6. The Texas Water Forum will be 3 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1 in Frio Street Building Room 1.406 at the UTSA Downtown Campus. The event is free and open to the public.

"The forum serves to inform the public about Proposition 6 and how its passage would affect their lives and local governments across Texas," said Francine Romero, associate dean of the UTSA College of Public Policy. "The goal of the forum is to bring these important policy issues to the forefront of public awareness."

The panelists will discuss the pros and cons of Proposition 6, which would establish 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 Texas State Water Plan. Voting for passage of Proposition 6 will be part of the statewide Nov. 5 election. SGA officers will be at the UTSA forum to register voters.

Panelists include:

  • Alyssa Burgin, executive director, Texas Drought Project
  • Jennifer Garver, Uvalde city manager
  • Lyle Larson, Texas state representative, District 122
