The bill, introduced by Senator Jeff Bingaman and co-sponsored by Mark Udall, reauthorizes annual funding for endangered species recovery programs on the Upper Colorado and San Juan Rivers which protect four species of fish. These recovery programs are necessary to allow more than 1,800 independent water projects on these rivers to continue to operate. In addition to the funds provided by Congress, cost sharing contributions come from Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, New Mexico, the Colorado River Storage Project, power customers, and water users.
