U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) praised the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee’s unanimous passage of two water bills.

The Bureau of Reclamation Transparency Act was introduced by Senators Barrasso and Brian Schatz (D-HI) last December to help improve aging water delivery systems and Bureau of Reclamation facilities across the country.

The Bureau of Reclamation Conduit Hydropower Development Equity and Jobs act was introduced by Senator Barrasso in February and is the companion bill to Representative Steve Daines’ (R-MT) bill (H.R. 1963).  Barrasso says their bill eliminates Washington red tape that currently prevents conduit hydropower development at eleven Bureau of Reclamation projects in the West. This bill would help pave the way for non-federal hydro-power development on all facets of these projects, including dams.
