Water conservation incentive plan

NewsChannel 10

Texas - A final vote is expected today in the Texas House on a plan that would offer property owners tax breaks for water conservation.

The incentive plan that comes as many parts of the state are struggling through a punishing drought.

The bi-partisan measure offers property tax incentives for those who set aside open-space land for water conversation.

The more productive those conservation efforts are, the greater the tax breaks.
