The third bill, H.R. 2354, was authored by Rodney Frelinghuysen of New Jersey and makes 2012 appropriations for energy and water development. It appears to fund 22 of the 23 California water-related projects proposed by President Obama’s budget. Sounds good except for an amendment to rescind the remaining balance of the San Joaquin River Restoration Fund, which would have been used to implement the San Joaquin River Settlement Agreement. This bill has passed the House.
