Concerning the priority in the state water code assigned to various beneficial uses

Rectifies the divergence of state law from its
constitutional underpinnings and instead establishes a
prioritization in the state water code that assigns instream
flow rights as junior to water rights that are applied to
beneficial uses of potable water supply, water for
agriculture and irrigation, and water for commercial and
industrial purposes.
