Elizabeth Bal Melanle Ruth Debner Jennifer Jane Berkman Ann Elizabeth Jones Kara Kristen Blrdwell Sara Elizabeth Bolle and Kristi Lynn Reimer By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer A revamped version of the bill that created the Edwards Aquifer Author ity sailed through state Senate com mittee last week and seems to be head ed for a tougher fight on the House side of the Capitol Sen Ken Armbrister DVictoria introduced Senate Bill 418 which revises SB 1477 the controversial bill passed at the last minute during the last legislative session It passed the Sen ate Natural Resources Committee 70 and should go before the entire Senate this week Armbrister sits on the com mittee Armbristers assistant Mario Munoz said the two main points of the new bill are to repeal a provision that eliminates the Edwards Underground Water District EUWD and give the EUWD authority to make low interest loans and grants The Justice Department pre vented the Edwards Aquifer Authori ty EAA from starting two years ago because it replaced an elected board the EUWD with an appointed one the Edwards Authority The revisions allow both to exist Were hoping that new provi sions will take care of the primary concerns of the Justice said Munoz The authority is supposed to have more power to register and regulate wells that pump water from aquifer Several groups have opposed the cre ation of the authority including those in the western counties of Medina and Uvalde and some in the city of San Antonio They have enough influence to cause some said county city and NBU water negotiator Doug Miller of some San Antonio members of the House of Representatives Thats where the real debate and real challenpe is froine to Rep Edmund Kuempel RSeguin said the key will be to make sure San Antonio cannot control policy over the aquifer at the expense of smaller Comal and Hays counties We want to make sure Comal County does not lose ground We want to make it said Kuempel who added he supports the revisions so long as all participants have equal Kent Caperton a former legislator and now counsel for the Edwards Underground Water District said he thinks revisions in the SB 1477 are good ones especially if the current EUWD is allowed to keep its pow ers I think its very important to allow the district to become more active par ticipant in solving the water prob he said With that in mind the EUWD is pushing its own recommendations to the Legislature for increased powers outside of the Edwards Aquifer Authority and SB 1477 or the revised SB 418 It has asked for alterations in its creative statutes that allow for more control For subscription advertising or news information call 6259144
