Senator Estes Appointed to SWIFT Committee

Texas State Senator Craig Estes has been appointed to another state committee.

Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst appointed Estes to the State Water Implementation Fund for Texas Advisory Committee.

Last November, Texas voters approved the creation of the account. It assists in financing water projects.

Estes says he will use his appointment to ensure the responsible use of funds to develop water resources.

The position filled by Senator Estes was vacated by Senator Robert Duncan, who retired to become chancellor of the Texas Tech University System.
