SE Oklahomans Presently have NO VOICE on its water use, says J. Paul Lane (OK-D)
Paul Lane doesn’t feel that SE Oklahoma water should be sold to Texas & OKC area as its in the interest of SE Oklahoma economic development to keep it’s water. He added that SE Oklahoma should have a voice on how its water is to be used, and that presently SE Oklahoma has NO say in the matter . Paul said that if elected he would file a companion bill w/state senator Brian Renagar (D-OK House District 17) status to make sure we have regional water boards, so that SE Oklahoman have a voice.
Lane’s opponent who is GOP nominee Larry Boggs at this political candidate forum did not offer any solution , but he did agree w/ Lane’s solution, but that SE Oklahoma had better vote for a Republican or we in SE Oklahoma will get no water rights because the republicans are in control.
The moderator’s question posed to J. Paul Lane was: “The possible sale of SE Oklahoma water to Texas & Oklahoma City area still remains unresolved. What is your stance on selling SE Oklahoma water to Texas & OKC area & if there is anything you can do to reinforce what you think should or should not be done regarding the matter ?”.
J. Paul Lane is the democrat nominee seeking election to the Oklahoma Senate District 7 that is being vacated by Richard C. Lerblance (democrat). Lane’s opponent is Larry Boggs the Republican nominee. Election is November 6, 2012.
