Proposition 6 is a constitutional amendment to help Texas create a water infrastructure fund to implement the State Water Plan and secure the future of water in the state. If passed, the amendment would establish a State Water Implementation Fund for Texas (SWIFT) that provides a conservative solution to meet growing water needs – without incurring debt in the process.
With the population expected to eventually double in Texas, the water infrastructure and resources currently in place will not be sufficient to maintain the water needs of businesses and residents.
Proposition 6 requires passage to ensure Texans have access to clean and affordable water; guaranteeing that the state and communities like McKinney can continue to be one of the best places to live and do business in America.
The McKinney Chamber of Commerce supports the passage of “Prop 6”, recommends businesses support “Prop 6” and encourages residents to vote FOR the amendment on the ballot in the November election.
