Sen. Loveless Commends Supreme Court on State Water Rights DecisionThu, 13 Jun 2013 16:25:11 CDT
State Sen. Kyle Loveless, R-Oklahoma City, issued the following statement on Thursday after the U.S. Supreme unanimously ruled against Texas in that state's fight to buy water from Oklahoma:
"This is an important ruling for Oklahoma and for other compact states as well. The justices agreed that Texas cannot force Oklahoma to sell them water. This ruling hopefully will set the stage for all parties on the other water lawsuit and enable Oklahoma City and the Tribes to work together to reach an amicable resolution. It is a huge development in every state's ability to control the assets of our natural resources within our borders. Over the next fifty to hundred years, water will be an increasingly vital resource for all Oklahomans."
