The delegation, appointed by Republican Speaker of the House Andy Tobin is comprised of State Representatives Republican Brenda Barton, Republican Darin Mitchell, Republican Frank Pratt and Democrat Lisa Otondo.
In 2010, the legislature created the Water Resources Development Commission. The WRDC worked for two years assessing Arizona’s known available water resources versus projected demand for the next 25, 50 and 100 years. The Commission determined that statewide water imbalances are eminent and recommended legislative action for future water supply development over the next 100 years.
However, groups such as Arizona Common Sense, argue that committee and groups have been in place for the last 100 years to properly delegate water rights to cities around the state. The meeting in Sierra Vista is scheduled for next Monday.
