Proposition 1 drainage fee passes

Proposition 1 called for a fee to help pay for improvements to the city's drainage system. With 99 percent of the votes in, it looks like this measure will pass. Supporters say the measure would raise $12 billion over the next 20 years. To generate that money, a fee would be assessed on all property owners, based on the square footage of their developed land.

Houston Mayor Annise Parker says city leaders will head to drawing board to figure out the best way to implement the plan to fix the city's drainage problems.
