The Santa Ana River Wash Land Exchange is headed to the president’s desk.
It was approved by the House of Representatives as part of the the massive Natural Resources Management Act.
Daniel Cozad, executive director of the San Bernardino Valley Water Conservation District, which has been working on the plan for nearly two decades, said President Donald Trump is expected to sign the bill.
Senate Bill 47 combines more than 100 pieces of legislation including the land-exchange bill co-sponsored by Rep. Paul Cook, a Republican from Apple Valley, and Pete Aguilar, a Democrat from Redlands.
It was approved by the U.S. Senate last week 92-8.
