San Joaquin Valley tells DC: “We need water!”

I’d like to thank the several thousand Central Valley residents who joined me and other Members of Congress on Wednesday for a water rally in Fresno. It was a great, energized crowd, and it sent a loud and clear message to the Senate, the Governor, the President, and the nation that we can’t wait any longer for action on the water crisis. Afterward, the House Natural Resources Committee held a field hearing on the crisis before a standing-room only audience.

You can read my opening remarks from the hearing here, and listen to Ray Appleton, John Batchelor, and I discuss the day’s events here. Additionally, you can watch a Fox News report on the rally and hearing by clicking on the picture below:
