Delta Water Bill HR 1837 in Congress needs to be stopped!
Delta Water Bill in Congress needs to be stopped! Steven Masone Rep. Nunes of Visalia is author of a bill in Congress that benefits his district and hurts ours. ( What else is new about the south state stealing our water to the detriment of the entire Delta?) Nunes' measure would cap the environmental obligations of state and federal water contractors, primarily those in the Central Valley and Southern California. It also would weaken environmental protection measures in the Central Valley Project Improvement Act, which is designed to increase salmon populations by shifting water from the Westlands Water District to the Delta.Nunes bill would repeal a historic agreement between water users and environmentalists to restore the San Joaquin River.
