Citation Excerpt: "The Committee recommendation increases the funding for the water availability project proposed in the request by $800,000. This program, as outlined in the Survey's November 2003 implementation plan, calls for the establishment of two pilot projects at an estimated cost of $5,200,000. Due to current budget constraints, the Committee recommendation does not fully fund the pilot project, but funding is included to initiative the Survey's top priority pilot project in the Great Lakes region. The Committee expects the Administration to continue to request funding in future budgets to expand this program for other areas of the country."

Citation Comment: Conference Report agreed to request of $800,000 and provided an additional $400,000, for a total of $1,200,000. "Changes to the House level for water resources investigations include ...and decreases of $400,000 for the water availability pilot project ...." ($394,000 after ATB reductions)
