In an 8 to 4 vote that included Chas Vincent, Doug Kary and Nels Swandal, the Senate Judiciary Committee just voted to move the CSKT Water Compact Bill SB262 to the senate floor for a vote.

We are not sure if the bill will come to the floor today or early next week, but will provide updates as we have them.

Senators Fielder, Hinkle and Sales spoke well to the concerns of the opposition to this compact, while Vincent, felt the need to attack these senators for their views and concerns about the compact.

Keep in mind, we’ve known for a while that the compact will likely pass in the Senate, and our best opportunity is to kill it in the house by hitting a home run in the house committee that it will be assigned to.

More details will be provided as they become available.
