                 referred the bill (S. 1751) to amend the Reclamation Project Act of
                 1939 to authorize pumped storage hydropower development uti-
                 lizing multiple Bureau of Reclamation reservoirs, having consid-
                 ered the same, reports favorably thereon with an amendment and
                 recommends that the bill, as amended, do pass.

                   The purpose of S. 1751 is to amend the Reclamation Project Act
                 of 1939 (43 U.S.C. 485) to authorize pumped storage hydropower
                 development utilizing multiple Bureau of Reclamation (BOR or
                 Reclamation) reservoirs.
                                    BACKGROUND AND NEED
                   Pumped storage hydropower projects generate electricity by mov-
                 ing water between an upper and lower reservoir based on elec-
                 tricity prices and demand, and other operational considerations.
                 Under current law, and pursuant to two Memorandum of Under-
                 standing agreements between the BOR and the Federal Energy
