Water Law in Legislation:
Right now there is a bill in the Select Water Committee. Bill draft 21LSO-0062.3 was introduced last year, it was then put on hold for further consideration. Now up for review again, looking to be passed on to the House and Senate. When this happens we will no longer have an opportunity for direct public comment or influence.
This bill directly affects Surface Water Rights on your land and within the state as a whole. Please take time to read through the proposed changes and reach out to our committee members with any questions or concerns regarding this issue.
