environmental analysis required pursuant to applicable Federal
law and on a demonstration that construction of a project for
the New Mexico Unit that would deliver an average annual safe
yield, based on a 50-year planning period, greater than 10,000
acre feet per year, would not cost more per acre foot of water
diverted than a project sized to produce an average annual safe
yield of 10,000 acre feet per year. If New Mexico exercises all
reasonable efforts to obtain the issuance of such Record of
Decision, but the Secretary is not able to issue such Record of
Decision by December 31, 2019, for reasons outside the control
of the State of New Mexico, the Secretary may extend the
deadline for a reasonable period of time, not to extend beyond

to 25 percent of the total return on the carryover funds earned during
the period in question that is in excess of a return on such funds at an
annual average effective return of 4 percent, up to a maximum total of
not more than $28,000,000, as adjusted to reflect changes since January
1, 2004, in the construction cost indices applicable to the types of
construction involved in construction of the New Mexico Unit.
(l) Disclaimer.--Nothing in this Act shall affect, alter, or
diminish rights to use of water of the Gila River within New Mexico, or
the authority of the State of New Mexico to administer such rights for
use within the State, as such rights are quantified by article IV of the
decree of the United States Supreme Court in Arizona v. California (376
U.S. 340).
(m) Priority of Other Exchanges.--The Secretary shall not approve
any exchange of Gila River water for water supplied by the CAP that
would amend, alter, or conflict with the exchanges authorized by section
