Arkansas Valley Conduit Act - Directs the Secretary of the Interior to plan, design, and construct a water delivery pipeline, to be known as the Arkansas Valley Conduit, from a location in the vicinity of Pueblo Reservoir, Pueblo, to Lamar, Colorado.

(3) pay costs for and perform the operations, maintenance, and replacement of the Conduit. Sets the federal share of:
(1) total planning, design, and construction costs at 80%; and
(2) any increased costs that are a result of fundamental design changes conducted at the request of anyone other than such entity at 100%.
Directs the Secretary, upon completion, to transfer ownership of the Conduit to such entity.

House Republican Conference Summary

The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.

No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
