Water Wars

Rep. Jerry Ellis,
HD 1, dropped off a couple of newspapers yesterday that headlined the water wars developing in SE Oklahoma over the possible sale of Oklahoma water to Texas developers and investors. Folks are drawing a line in the sand over this issue, Ellis says, and so should the legislature. If Texans want to buy our water then they need to build their homes and businesses north of the Red River according to Ellis and others who've been talking about this issue recently. Some have even said, sure, we'll sell water to Texas, one bottle at a time!

Ellis advises that folks keep an eye on this issue, and on our water supply. Hey you'd think our state has water issues or something, maybe even a history of drought and dust bowls. Hmmmm.
