DENVER - Colorado Attorney General John Suthers made the following statement today regarding the $34 million payment sent to Kansas as part of the ongoing litigation over the Arkansas River Compact:

“I am pleased that the General Assembly and the Governor quickly authorized payment to Kansas and stopped the interest accrual.
