Unused state funds target of DeWitt

By Glenn Rea

While DeWitt County had success with the State Legislature in 2013, it is now taking aim at the next session which begins in January. At last week’s commissioners court meeting, former state representative and county legislative advisor Steve Holzheauser of Victoria gave a presentation of what is ahead for energy producing counties. “DeWitt County was part of an historic achievement during the 2013 state legislative session in Austin,” he said. “Never before in the history of the legislative process has the state appropriated money from the general revenue fund for counties to use for the maintenance of county owned roads. That didn’t happen by accident. It happened because of a lot of hard work.”
