02:00 PM -- SB 16-174



Senator Sonnenberg, prime-sponsor, discussed the provisions of Senate Bill 16-174 concerning the Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) Construction Fund. He also distributed Amendment L.001 (Attachment D) and Amendment L.002 (Attachment E). This bill appropriates $11,300,000 in FY 2016-17 from the CWCB Construction Fund and the Perpetual Base Fund for specific water-related projects. This bill also authorizes seven cash fund transfers; extends the Windy Gap Reservoir bypass channel project until July 1, 2020; and allows the CWCB to participate in water distribution system projects. The bill also gives the CWCB a variety of powers to fully utilize the state's water allocation in the Animas-La Plata project in southwest Colorado and directs the State Treasurer to credit money received pursuant to the exercise of those powers to the CWCB construction fund. It also continuously appropriates these moneys to the board for this purpose.
