This bill offers long-term solutions to a drought that will only get worse with time. Promoting water conservation, research, and efficiency will not only help the public plan for current water shortages, but lessen the impact of future droughts.
Why should every taxpayer in the U.S. have to foot the bill for water conservation in a few choice states? Also, shouldn't the answer just be rationing? Why should it cost over a billion dollars to tell people in the southwest to take shorter showers?
