Boyd unhappy - Isakson farseeing

Published 06/03/2008
Boyd plans to have oystermen, shrimpers and others on the Apalachicola River and Bay further plead the case to the Corps and USFWS at a forum in Chattahoochee, Fla., on July 21.

But U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson of Georgia is looking ahead, way ahead into the future.

In March, Isakson introduced the Twenty-First Century Water Commission Act of 2008 in the U.S. Senate to establish a national commission to develop strategies to increase water supplies and improve the availability, reliability and quality of freshwater resources.

The commission, according to Isakson, would study current water management programs of federal, interstate, state and local agencies and private-sector entities, as well as consult with representatives of such agencies and entities to develop recommendations for a comprehensive national water strategy for the next 50 years.
