Okay, last one for the day. Burned out on doing this. I'll do at least 3 more tomorrow. 

Anyway, some things that should be here might be under "Regulations." No matter. The ideas that would be most helpful here are more Gov Actions, more Pres Actions, more Era of the Future, and also things that RW Pop, Traditionalists, and Conservatives would do that would be something other than repealing these.

Federal Water Resource plan.

Just a general comment, but it's hard to remember what I've put in the individual topics and what I haven't so it'd probably be a good idea to check what I posted in the "ideas for the future era" thread and just assume I want to restate them all if I haven't already.
