Responding to a request from Speaker of the House John Boehner, Rep. Valadao, Rep. McCarthy, and myself, Agriculture Committee Chairman Frank Lucas has presented a legislative fix for the water crisis to the Conference Committee on the Farm Bill. The bill could pass this week, bringing fast relief to South Valley farmers and communities. We sincerely hope California’s senators will cooperate with the House and support this proposal to alleviate the dire conditions facing many of our constituents.
