Oversight Field Hearing on:
"California Water Crisis and Its Impact: The Need for Immediate and Long Term Solutions"
* Ms. Marcus was invited by the Committee but declined to attend.
The San Joaquin Valley is once again suffering from drought conditions exacerbated by unworkable federal regulations that put the needs of a 3-inch fish over people. The House of Representatives passed a bill (H.R. 3964) to help resolve this situation. That bill, along with another bill (S. 2016), is now pending in the U.S. Senate. Although Senate action has not been announced on either bill, a number of House Members recently stated that they stand ready to negotiate with the Senate to bring relief to the San Joaquin Valley. In the interim, this field hearing is designed to focus on the need to resolve differences in order to bring immediate and long-term water supplies to the San Joaquin Valley and other parts of California.
