State Representative Gene Whisnant of Sunriver says it’s looking like an important water bill for Central Oregon will make it thru this session. Whisnant says his top priority is getting the "The Deschutes Basin Water Mitigation Bill" through session. The Bill would extend the Deschutes Basin Water Management agreement to the year 2029. It was due to sunset in 2014. Whisnant says the agreement is important because local cities, farmers and others need the stability in knowing what their water resources will look like for many years.  "Again, I want to get rid of the sunset forever but at least we've extended it for 15 years now to 2029, so at least someone who's looking at moving here or doing something can say okay we know this program will stay in place during that long period of time." Thursday the bill passed out of the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Natural Resources, which Whisnant believes was its’ toughest challenge. He says groups like Water Watch,  Friends of the Metolius and others support the bill.
