2004 Decision Makers Field Conference
Understanding Texas’ Natural Resources, Central Texas Region
April 7–8, 2004

The inaugural Decision Makers Field Conference was hosted by the Bureau of Economic Geology on April 7-8, 2004. More than 30 state legislators, key legislative staff, and leaders of State agencies were given the unique opportunity to explore the natural resources of Central Texas, including groundwater resources, fossil fuels, and nonfuel mineral resources, and to discuss the issues with the experts. As the facilitator, the Bureau's objective is to encourage dialog between those with responsibilities, interests, and concerns about natural resources in Texas and those who are actively involved in research or operations related to these resources.
