TWCA routinely works with legislators and agency staff to promote sound water policy in Texas. Our goal is to act as a resource and to help facilitate complex solutions among stakeholders. We actively track legislation related to surface water, groundwater, government entities and water districts, open records and open meetings, and other relevant subjects that are of interest to our members. In some cases, TWCA initiates legislative proposals through various stakeholder committees at the Association.
