COLORADO RIVER ALLOCATION; MANAGEMENT 1/26 referred to Senate nat res-energy.
SJR1003: LOWER COLORADO BASIN; FORBEARANCE AUTHORITY

Arizona is authorized to forbear its rights to the use of certain quantities of intentionally created surplus from the Colorado river if Mexico agrees to reduce its deliveries of Colorado river water in the same years that deliveries to Arizona are reduced due to shortage and which allows Colorado river entitlement holders in Arizona, California and Nevada to form partnerships with Mexico for the purpose of supplementing the lower Colorado river mainstream to create intentionally created surplus. The Department of Water Resources (DWR) is authorized to enter into an agreement in substantially the same form as the 2017 lower Colorado river basin forbearance agreement for binational intentionally created surplus to forbear the Arizona's rights to certain quantities of intentionally created surplus from the Colorado river that would otherwise be available for use in Arizona. The authority granted to DWR for this agreement expires on December 31, 2017.

First sponsor: Sen. Griffin
