AUSTIN Following today's House passage of House Bill 382, which establishes a customer assistance program for El Paso Water, Rep. Lina Ortega released the following statement:

"This bill authorizes El Paso Water to help low-income customers through bill payment assistance. Water rate increases are especially burdensome for low-income and elderly customers and I am proud that this bill is one step closer to becoming law."
