History of Lobbying:

Dry Prairie Rural Water was authorized by Congress as the State of Montana's first Regional Water Authority in January 2000. The Authorization of the project was no small feat. In order for this to happen, Dry Prairie Rural Water utilized the firms of Preston Gates, Ellis, Rouvelas & Meads and Greenburg Traurig in Washington, D.C. to lobby on behalf of the Ft. Peck Reservation Rural Water System.

Since 2005, Dry Prairie has been utilizing the services of Barnes & Thornburg of Washington, D.C. for all Federal Lobbying activities. Barnes and Thornburg are on retainer to Dry Prairie for all Federal lobbying services for $10,000/month. The bulk of all current lobby activities are centered around the Project's Annual Appropriation Request and assistance with supplying testimony to Congress as well as contacts with the appropriate committee and subcommittees.

The following is a tabulation of Dry Prairie's Lobbying Expenditures on behalf of the Ft. Peck Reservation Rural Water System to date:
