Before heading back to Washington next week, I’ve taken the opportunity to meet with community leaders and constituents from across the district to hear about their priorities and discuss the important work we’ve been doing. Here are some of the highlights for the week of April 22nd:
Securing Access for the Central Valley Enhancement of (SAVE) Water Resources Act
The SAVE Water Resources Act addresses the ongoing challenges our Valley faces in securing water for our farmers. I am proud to be an original co-sponsor for this new legislation announced by Rep. Josh Harder earlier this week. By implementing competitive financing programs and funding infrastructure projects and increased water storage, I think this legislation would lay important groundwork for further efforts to expand our Valley’s water supply. I am working on a complementary piece of legislation to build on this significant step.
