Good news for now.  California’s over-allocated, drought-reduced water supply is a complex subject affecting every region of the state.  It won’t work for members of Congress to start secretly carving it up and picking winners and losers with a small group of Delta exporters calling the shots.  However, I remain willing and eager to work with any member of congress on a fair, inclusive and responsible congressional drought response in January.

Though the U.S. is fighting ISIS in Iraq and Syria, our elected leaders continue to shirk their constitutional responsibility.
