E-M:/ "aquifer protection" bill passes Senate

Sen. Birkholz said her bill does not directly address water diversion, or the sale of water to another state or country. But she said if enacted, it would "indirectly affect diversion over the long run because we will have made a statement as a state that we feel strongly enough about protecting the resource that we've enacted legislation to deal with it."
