Angelo Rules __TOP__
Angelo still has to deal with the natural setbacks that most kids have to confront: like parents, siblings, and rules. But that doesn't deter him. He has a couple of really good friends who help him in his strategic planning: Sherwood, the logistic king, and Lola, the mega enthusiast. Together they make the "winning trio!"
We assume this point arguendo because the matter is not entirely settled by existing precedent. The respondents argue, based principally on 8 C.F.R. 3.14(a), that no deportation proceedings were commenced until the INS filed the NTA with the Immigration Court on August 11, 1997; that IIRIRA's permanent rules therefore apply; and, accordingly, that any hope of a section 212(c) waiver is by the boards. Neither Mattis nor Wallace foreclose this argument because those cases involved the transitional rules and left open (as do we) the question of how criminal aliens similarly situated would fare under IIRIRA's permanent rules. Mattis, 212 F.3d at 35 n.9; Wallace, 194 F.3d at 288.
This Article takes a national view of the modernization of water law. Using Florida as an example, it identifies some of the most important and controversial challenges faced by states. Part II provides an overview of the process of water law reform. As states attempt to improve water management, they have modified their common law water allocation systems with an overlay of statutory law. Often, the process occurs in a piecemeal fashion, resulting in a patchwork of rules -- common law and statutory, old and new. In rare cases -- including that of Florida -- the process may be more comprehensive, one through which states supplement or supplant their common law with modem statutory codes. Part III examines the evolutionary path of Florida, a state that has adopted a generally wholesale reform in modem times. Because this reform took place in 1972 -- at the dawn of the environmental era -- the reform reflects modem environmental and public interest sensibilities. Part IV turns from process to substance, identifying five challenges that plague virtually all states: (1) advancing the public interest while allocating water among competing users; (2) retaining sufficient water in natural streams, lakes, and aquifers to maintain vibrant aquatic ecosystems; (3) ensuring that adequate water supplies will be available for future needs; (4) determining the extent to which managers should "transfer" water from places of relative abundance to places of relative scarcity; and (5) determining the role, if any, of the "free" market 4 in allocating water resources within states. 041b061a72
