GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - A battle is shaping up in Congress over federal efforts to claim western water.
Republican U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton says legislation recognizing the water laws of Colorado and other western states could discourage federal efforts to claim water the states need for their own use.
According to the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel, Tipton plans to introduce legislation aimed at clarifying western water law to deter federal pre-emption of water rights.
