Things went well at last week's meeting of the after Management District Review Commission.
We successfully lobbied the Commission to strip down Tom Dyer s page pages of
recommendations with all references to a state conservation plan deleted. Commission members
Jack Maloy and Joe Marlin Hilliard helped control the agenda.

The Cominission also adopted language we helped draft which would require water management
districts to issue 20-year consumptive use permits except where to do otherwise would cause
"irreparable harm" to waters.

The final report will provide for greater legislative oversight over water management districts and
some improvements to the governing board appointments process. The recommendations as
drafted maintain the basic structure and function of districts with increased emphasis on regional
water supply planning and development.

Tom Dyer's proposed report was the only "negative" we really had to deal with. Now that the
Dyer issues have been handled, the final report should come out good for us.

The next step for committee staff is to translate the Commission's recommendations into
legislation. We will be involved in that effort.

On a related issue, attached please find legislative recommendations of Senator Latvala and
Representative Safley which attempt to resolve some of the water supply problems in the West
Coast region. These recommendations were presented to the WMD Review Commission by Pete
Hubbeli of SWFWMD. The Commission declined to comment on the proposal.

Please ca!l if you have questions..

Thanks. -;
