Summary: HB 2578 would remove regulations that discourage private companies from moving forward with brackish water desalination treatment procedures. HB 2578 would lay down the framework that would allow companies to develop desalination techniques, something that they cannot do now.
Analysis: HB 2578 would limit government and encourage the free market to undertake this important process. As the oil and gas industry expands in Texas, brackish water treatment will become more necessary and it is important that Texas businesses be able to operate in a way that will be efficient and sustainable.
