H.R. 4465: Endangered Fish Recovery Programs Extension Act of 2017

Mar 13, 2018 at 7:03 p.m. ET. On Motion to Suspend the Rules and Pass in the House.

This was a vote to pass H.R. 4465 (115th) in the House. This vote was taken under a House procedure called “suspension of the rules” which is typically used to pass non-controversial bills. Votes under suspension require a 2/3rds majority. A failed vote under suspension can be taken again.

H.R. 4465 extends through 2023, the specific authority of the Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) to collect and spend certain proceeds from the sale of electricity generated by hydropower plants owned by BOR for endangered fish recovery programs in the Upper Colorado River and San Juan River Basins. The fish recovery activities include research, removal of nonnative fish, and program management, while at the same time ensuring the continued reliability of water and power operations in these Basins. In recent years, BOR has spent approximately $12 million annually under this program, of which $8 million is from these hydropower sales.
