I introduced H.R. 519 to keep water affordable for farmers, ranchers, and rural communities while giving them a greater stake in their water resources. The bill allows mutual water storage and delivery companies to maintain their non-profit status, even if they receive more than 15% of their revenue from non-members, so long as the monies are reinvested into maintenance, operations, and infrastructure improvements. This gives these companies the chance to use revenue from non-members for infrastructure that’s vital to their operations, keeping prices low for all users.
