Senate ENR Subcommittee Tees up 16 Western Water Bills 

The Senate Energy and Natural Resources (ENR) Water and Power Subcommittee last month heard testimony on sixteen bills dealing with the impacts of drought across the West, including restoration of fish habitat and permitting new hydropower projects. 

Prior to the hearing, the Family Farm Alliance submitted written testimony that addressed most of the bills that were heard. 

“We have actively advocated for and contributed to the development of several of the West-wide bills on the hearing docket,” said Alliance Executive Director Dan Keppen.
