Reorganized state water board loses one member

State of Texas
Mary Ann Williamson, center, was sworn in by Gov. Rick Perry to her new role at the Texas Water Development Board in September 2013. But Williamson resigned in January.

The Texas Water Development Board has had its own governing board reorganized. Last year, the Texas Legislature replaced the six-member volunteer board with a three-member full-time board. Governor Rick Perry appointed three longtime associates to the new positions. But one of them - Mary Ann Williamson - has resigned, less than half a year after accepting the position. Texas Tribune environment reporter Neena Satija discusses the changes in Austin.
