Soil and water conservation districts and conservancy districts. Makes the following changes in the statutes governing soil and water conservation districts: (1) Amends the statement of the general assembly's policy on the management of soil and water resources to include the goal of protecting and improving soil quality. (2) Eliminates the condition that, to be an elected supervisor on the governing body of a district, an individual must occupy a tract of land larger than ten acres. (3) Changes certain voting procedures. (4) Requires the supervisors of a district to provide supervision for employees of the district. (5) Generally authorizes the use of money in the clean water Indiana fund to qualify for federal matching funds. (Under current law, the fund can be used to qualify for federal matching funds only if the federal matching funds are for county soil survey computerization.) Permits the board of directors of a conservancy district to adopt a resolution authorizing the financial clerk of the district to make claim payments for certain expenses in advance of allowances by the board.
