Natural resources committee
NATURAL RESOURCE ISSUES STUDY – States findings of the Legislature and authorizes the Legislative Council to appoint a committee to undertake and complete a study of natural resource issues.

RS30251 / HCR003

This legislation would authorize the Legislative Council to continue an interim committee to undertake studies of natural resource issues, particularly the water resources of the state.

If this resolution is adopted by the Legislature and the committee is continued by the Legislative Council, any necessary legislator travel expense would be paid from the existing legislative appropriation to the Senate and House of Representatives. Funding for staff support and expenses would be provided from the existing appropriation to the Legislative Council for the Legislative Services Office. There would be no additional impact upon the state General Fund as a result of this Resolution.
