H.R. 23: Gaining Responsibility on Water Act of 2017

Author's Summary: "To provide drought relief in the State of California, and for other purposes."

IB's Summary: This bill would strip the state of California of its right to enforce state or federal environmental protections when applying water deliveries. It's specific to particular water projects in California, but would set a radical precedent for future battles between environmental and commercial water interests, especially during droughts.
