The article reports that the Texas Water Development Board has hired James LeBas as its new chief financial officer, a position that board executives say will prove extremely important to the agency as it seeks its highest appropriation from lawmakers since 1985. LeBas, who has served as the state's chief revenue estimator since 1999, has been credited by state officials with helping the state weather the recent recession without interim budget cuts because of the accuracy of his biennial revenue predictions.
