The Lubbock County Detention Center is monitoring each new inmate for Ebola. The jail started to implement new measures on Friday, the day after EMS and Hazmat responded to a suspected case of Ebola which turned out to be a false alarm. Chief Deputy Cody Scott said the jail is doing this as a proactive measure.
State Proposition 6 passed last night, with 73% of the vote. The passage allows for a constitutional amendment to create the State Water Implementation Fund for Texas. From that money, loans will be given out to cities around the state to finance their water projects. State Representative Four Price co-authored the bill that led to the proposition.
