Water Grab Two

The Southern Nevada Water Authority is allowed to pump tens of thousands of acres of water from the rural regions of Northwestern Nevada.  State engineer, Jason King, decided that the water authority has the right to pump more than eighty thousand acres a year from Lincoln and White Pine Counties.  There are many stipulations in place but opponents of the pipeline don't like them.  What happens next and does southern Nevada want to pay what this pipeline may actually cost to build?
