The Colorado Water Congress Federal Affairs Committee directs organizational efforts on a national level.
Comprised of 50+ members, the Federal Affairs Committee monitors federal legislation concerning the conservation, protection, and development of Western water resources. The committee meets the fourth Thursday of each month to work on Federal water legislation.
Along with many western partner states and organizations, the CWC Federal Affairs Committee plays an active role in the National Water Resources Association (NWRA). This coalition presents a united front for federal protection of and proper attention to Western water.
Each year in late March or early April, the Federal Affairs Committee travels to D.C. to brief Colorado's Congressional Delegation on key water issues. CWC's national recognition is strengthened by opportunities for committee members to network with legislative staff.
