Natural Resources Committee Passes Smith’s Northport Bill
Congressman Adrian Smith’s (R-NE) legislation affecting the Northport Irrigation District was approved today by the Committee on Natural Resources. H.R. 4562, would provide repayment authority for members of the Northport Irrigation District under a dated Bureau of Reclamation contract. The bill will now be referred to the full House of Representatives for consideration.
“I appreciate the Natural Resources Committee passing this needed legislation, and I look forward to its consideration by the full House. Allowing producers within the irrigation district to pay off their portion of the Bureau of Reclamation contract would be a commonsense reform, and a win-win for landowners and the government.”
