TODAY: TPPF’s Kathleen Hartnett White to Testify on Water Rights
 
PRESS RELEASE
 

Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Kathleen Hartnett White, Distinguished Senior Fellow-in-Residence and Director of the Armstrong Center for Energy and the Environment, will testify on House Bill 3028, a bill related to groundwater ownership and rights. White will testify before Texas House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Special Water Districts TODAY, Monday, April 10, 2017 upon House adjournment in Room JHR 140 at the John H. Reagan State Office Building.

          “History has shown across the world, in Texas and most recently during the Shale Revolution, that clear private property rights offer the most effective way for achieving not only private goals but also the public good – an abundant, reliable water supply,” said Mrs. White. “HB 3028 offers a critical addition to the Legislature’s and the Texas Supreme Court’s recent clarification of the landowner’s ownership of the groundwater in place below the surface.”
