BURNET — A state lawmaker is vowing to make waves again by introducing legislation to reform the appointment process for the Lower Colorado River Authority board.

“It has to do with affecting more local accountability,” state Rep. Donna Howard told The Tribune Jan. 4 after a local speaking engagement.

She wants to limit how many appointments the governor can make to the board by giving local leaders a bigger voice.

The veteran educator, a Democrat whose district includes much of Travis County, was in town to address the Burnet County Democrats Executive Committee.
