Howard Boswell held a news conference Friday to answer critics of the proposed constitutional amendment authorizing a $3.5 billion bond issue to finance the slate's share of the water plan. He also said an unnamed slate has offered lo sell Texas surplus waler. "We have been approached by another slale asking if we are inlerested in some surplus water," he said.
