4/10/2008--Reported to Senate amended.
Amends the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve Act of 2000 to provide that the purpose of the Baca National Wildlife Refuge shall be to restore, enhance, and maintain wetland, upland, riparian, and other habitats for native wildlife, plant, and fish species in the San Luis Valley. Instructs the Secretary of the Interior, in administering the Refuge, to:
(1) emphasize migratory bird conservation; and
(2) take into consideration the role of the Refuge in broader landscape conservation efforts.
Provides for the Secretary, in administering water resources for the Refuge and subject to any existing agreement and to the extent consistent with the purposes of the Refuge, to use decreed water rights on the Refuge in approximately the same manner that the water rights have been used historically.

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.
