Direct the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources to enter into a new contract with the United States Army Corps of Engineers to amend the criteria for selecting in-lieu-fee mitigation projects to allow for stream restoration and to urge the Kentucky Congressional delegation to amend the Clean Water Act to disallow use of a regionally selective conductivity standard.
