WASHINGTON - Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) introduced legislation to eliminate barriers to the construction of the Lower Bois d'Arc Creek Reservoir (LBCR). The North Texas Water Supply SecurityAct (H.R. 4423) reforms litigation processes to allow the project to be completed in a timely manner.

'With booming population growth in Northeast Texas, we can't afford to allow any more bureaucratic delays to the construction of the Lower Bois d'Arc Creek Reservoir, which is vital to ensuring we meet our increasing water needs,' Rep. Ratcliffe said. 'I'm proud to be working with Senator Cruz and my fellow Northeast Texas Representatives on legislation that will strip away the red tape that's been getting in the way of this important project for far too long.'

'I am proud to introduce this legislation with my colleagues from North Texas,' Sen. Cruz said. 'For far too long, bureaucratic red tape has left projects like Lower Bois d'Arc Creek Reservoir unfinished. By eliminating those delays, this bill will help address the looming water crisis facing North Texas and provide certainty to Texas' water supply.'
