There's a saying in Texas that's as common as the heat: Whisky is for drinking and water is for fighting. In part two of our State of Water series, we talked to state lawmakers about the political realities behind that sentiment.

Republican Sen. Troy Fraser, chair of the Senate Committee on Natural Resources, Democratic Rep. Donna Howard of Austin and Bech Bruun of the newly appointed Texas Water Development Board joined us to talk about property rights, state oversight and more.
