Amend printed bill, page 2, after line 3 insert:
"(a) As a headwaters state, all of Colorado's major rivers flow
downstream to 18 states and Mexico. Coloradans recognize that each river
basin in the state is unique, but that all are vital to the viability of the state's
overall economy and way of life.
(b) Coloradans recognize that we are all connected through the state's
rivers, streams, watersheds, and irrigation and water delivery systems. When the
state's interstate compact entitlements are threatened in one basin, the water
supplies of other basins may be impacted.
(c) Colorado will protect and defend its water rights throughout the
state and preserve Colorado's interstate compact entitlements, agreements, and
Reletter succeeding paragraphs accordingly.
