Legislators Update Local Business Leaders on Latest Session


COLLEGE STATION Local business leaders got a recap from elected officials on the latest legislative session.

State Senator Charles Schwertner and State Representatives John Raney and Kyle Kacal were the panel at the Bryan/College Station Chamber of Commerce's economic outlook meeting Wednesday afternoon at the Hilton.

The three talked at length about funding for transportation and water projects, among other items.

Pending approval, two billion dollars from the Rainy Day Fund will go to create a water project fund.

"What we did in the first session is paramount," Kacal said. "That covers education, transportation and healthcare. Without water, we're nowhere, so I want to encourage everybody to study Proposition 6 for November."
