State Sen. Craig Estes (R-Wichita Falls) addressed the Rotary Club of Graham on Friday noon, Nov. 13, 2013, discussing several issues facing the state right now.
Estes told Rotarians that growth in Texas is creating huge demands on water and transportation resources. He outlined ways Texas is addressing these critical issues and how the state could use its growing “Rainy Day” fund to help pay for solutions.
Estes said Texas is growing its population at a rate of 1,100 new residents a day. At that rate, he said demographers project the state's population will double to 50 million in fewer than 40 years. “It all boils down to opportunity,” said Estes, who represents Young County as part of his Senate district.
