Public Statements

East Bench Irrigation District Water Contract Extension Act

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. LUJÁN. Mr. Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may consume.

Mr. Speaker, S. 997 was introduced by Senator Jon Tester in May of last year and passed the Senate in November 2011.

As my colleague mentioned, S. 997 would extend the East Bench Irrigation District's water contract for 4 years pending a judicial ruling. The administration has testified in support of S. 997 because it would allow for water service to the district to continue and allows for contract renewal while the court confirmation process is given time to be completed.

We thank Senator Jon Tester for his leadership, and we have no objections to this legislation.

I yield back the balance of my time.
