In September of 2013, Governor Perry appointed Carlos Rubinstein to chair the newly reorganized Texas Water Development Board (TWDB).
The AGC has accepted an invitation to serve as a member of TxDOT’s Advisory Committee for the update of the Local Government Project Procedures (LGPP).
A frequent agenda item at the Joint Committee is the need for better managed information and processes concerning TxDOT funding of locally let projects. In the past few years, TxDOT has worked with AGC of Texas to bring more transparency and efficiency to its website when looking at the local let schedule; however, due to the nature of that schedule, problems have persisted.
With all the talk of the State Water Plan and the need for funding, a number of locally funded water infrastructure projects are currently underway to ensure the Metroplex and surrounding areas have an adequate water supply in the future.
