Bipartisan legislation approving the Missouri water resources plan and its implementation is a step closer to approval.
The Senate has approved the bill 26-2, and it now heads to a House committee in Jefferson City this (Tuesday) morning.
Senate concurrent resolution 31 from State Sen. Jason Bean (R-Holcomb) notes Missouri’s thousands of miles of rivers, streams and lakes supply Missouri’s six-million residents with critical water resources, and that water planning is necessary to plan for future shortfalls in water supply. The bill notes water planning is necessary to identify water supply needs.
Senator Bean will testify before the House Agriculture Policy Committee this morning at 9.
