House acts fast on California water bill

In light of the drought emergency in California, the House leadership has scheduled a vote for next week on H.R. 3964, the comprehensive water fix introduced in the House by the entire California GOP delegation. The bill has already provoked opposition from Governor Brown's administration and from the usual suspects who have resisted every significant effort to bring relief to drought-stricken Californians. Nevertheless, Speaker of the House John Boehner understands the situation's urgency and is determined to quickly submit this bill for a vote.
