President Donald Trump signed a bill Tuesday authorizing a plan for Western states to take less water from the overburdened Colorado River.

The president’s signing capped a years-long process of sometimes difficult negotiations among the seven states that rely on the river. Trump announced his approval of the bill in a tweet, calling it a “big deal” for Arizona.

Minutes later, Gov. Doug Ducey applauded Trump and all of the lawmakers who did their part in formalizing the plan and said it was “a crucial action that moves DCP one step closer to full implementation.”
