Daines Hydropower Bill Passes the House

Posted: Updated:

A bill to expand hydropower production in Montana passes without opposition in the US House today.

Congressman Steve Daines wrote the bill that he says removes outdated laws that currently prevent irrigation districts from developing hydropower on Bureau of Reclamation canals, ditches, and conduits.

The 11 projects you see here would be immediately affected by the Daines bill.

That includes the Buffalo Rapids Project, Intake Project, Milk River Project and Missoula Valley Project in Montana.

The bill now moves to the Senate for consideration.
