Democratic leaders kill yet another effort to turn on the pumps


Tonight, House Appropriations Committee Democrats defeated an amendment I offered that would have restored water deliveries to dry San Joaquin Valley communities.

While the vote was disappointing, we are gaining important public attention and increasing traction in our efforts. We have put Democratic leaders on the defense and on notice - the American people are watching.

I have uploaded video of tonight’s debate and vote.
