House Committee in Fresno Prods Senate on Drought Action

The House of Representatives Natural Resources Committee held a field hearing in Fresno amid rallying farmers to get Senate action on pending legislation to provide more water for the Central Valley agricultural region. Congressmen at the hearing and witnesses from Valley towns and farms were unified in decrying environmental regulations and calling on the US Senate to pass legislation that would build dams and relax rules that protect the Bay Delta’s wildlife and water quality.
