1. WHEREAS, This Committee was appointed for the purpose of making a study of all matters concerning, or in any way pertaining to, the development and use of bays of the State of Texas and the inlets and tributaries thereto, for hunting, fishing, boating, and recreational purposes; the mining and producing of mudshell, clam shell, sand, clay, and marl from such bays, the inlets and tributaries thereto; and the transportation by pipeline or otherwise of oil, gas, and other minerals across such bays, the inlets and tributaries thereto; and all matters pertaining to the pollution and contamination by all users of such bays, the inlets and tributaries thereof; and
WHEREAS The Committee is of the opinion that because of lack of time to cope with the enormity of this study, only a very temporary and preliminary report can be offered as of the convening of the 59th Legislature, and the further fact that the Committee believes that the study should be a continuing attempt to evaluate the benefits and to offer initial solutions to the many problems rising from the multiple use of all the waters of Texas, both surface and subsurface, and that since the entire state is confronted with a serious water and water pollution problem, its study should be expanded to include all the waters of Texas; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, by the Senate of the State of Texas, the House of Representatives concurring, that the committee be continued and shall be authorized to continue this necessary study, but to extend over the entire State of Texas and to include all of the multiple uses of all of the waters of the state whatsoever, and the Committee shall be known as The Legislative Study on Multiple Use and Pollution of All Waters of Texas.

Appointed by Lieutenant Governor 2/16/1965 and 5/31/1965 and Speaker 5/21/1965, pursuant to SCR 9, 59th Legislature. Continuation and extension of Bays of Texas Interim committee, appointed pursuant to SCR 60, 58th Legislature.
