Re: Legislative Bills SB 109, SB 11l, HB 1701 and HB 1702 E

Dear Buddy:

Enclosed are copies of the above.referenced bills. SB 109 and SB 112
are of significance because of the impact on the District. SB 109
especially needs to be made stronger so as to enforce the water management
district have maximum input and approval as to the availability of water
for locating electric power plants. It would seem that the act should
require the approval of the water management district before a certification
is granted for a power plant site.

As to SB 112, this should be viewed closely as to whether the method of
determining just compensation is adverse to the District's interest and
could greatly increase the amount of money paid for property condemned
by the District.

Finally, HB 1701 and HB 1702 are important as the District is involved in
trying to locate these wells and force corrective measures be taken by
the owerns. The District would like to see these legislative bills
adopted into law with the necessary amendments to protect the natural

Very truly yours,

Staff Attorney
