Leaders call for water regulation reform

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Hundreds of New Mexico officials, business leaders and others finished hashing out recommendations Wednesday for improving the way the drought-stricken state uses its water and plans for the future.

They’re calling for more sharing agreements to stretch meager water supplies through dry times, and changes in the law to better balance the water needs of people with endangered species.

They also want to carve out a portion of the state budget each year for water projects.
