During the 2017 legislative session, Representative Ray Rodriguez introduced house bill 1401
that proposed to change the way the East Mulloch Drainage District was governed and funded. This was to address the obvious shortfall in the amount the district raises, and the needs to maintain the district as described in the analysis report below.
It would have been a 5 member elected board that had the capacity to raise funds without the current pre-defined cap on the limit of ($30/acre) or about $7 per home on quarter/acre lot.
It was vetoed by the Governor. Here is the HB 1401 Veto Letter
I’ve contacted Mr. Freeman to ask what his response is and how he thinks we can move forward.
