Arizona Business Gazette: “A legislative raid on Central Arizona Project funds is not only illegal but also could leave state residents literally high and dry, the lawyer for the organization is charging. In legal papers filed with the state Supreme Court, attorney Robert Lynch said the $13.9 million taken to balance prior and current state budgets comes not from Arizona taxpayers but is part of a $100 million payment from Nevada in exchange for Arizona letting that state have some of its Colorado River water allocation. The money is supposed to be used by Arizona to bank some of the water this state does not need now but will require in future years.”
