Keep Your Money: Let the West Pay for its Own Water Projects
University of New Mexico School of Law
Public Land & Resources Law Review, Vol. 27, p. 15, 2006
The question posed here is what role the federal government should play in responding to the western water crisis, in light of the changes in the social and political landscape that have occurred in the last decade. My thesis is that solutions to water needs that are funded locally are more likely to be sustainable than those produced through national appropriations. My thinking is affected by the work I did on a Presidential commission that recommended sustainability be the cornerstone of western water policy.
