Relating to regulation of the production of retail public utility
wells by a groundwater conservation district.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
SB 2026 would allow retail public utilities in certain groundwater conservation districts which regulate production based on tract size or acreage to petition the district for authorization to produce groundwater based on the aggregate acreage owned or leased by the retail public utility and the acreage of the landowners served by the utility provided certain conditions are met.
HB 2026 is administrative in nature with no apparent connection to our liberty principles. For this reason we remain neutral.
