On a 76-0 vote, the California Assembly passed a bill (AB 1390 – Alejo/Gomez ) that makes improvements to the process governing judicial proceedings related to groundwater adjudications. The changes reduce the burden of groundwater adjudications on both the courts and claimants without altering the law of groundwater rights and without disrupting the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act planning process. Western Growers supported the legislation, along with many other key agriculture groups.

Are you one of the many Western Growers members who took advantage last year of drought assistance funding through the State Water Efficiency Program (SWEEP)?  Maybe you meant to but never got around to it?  Either way, the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) has opened a new round of funding and is now accepting applications for competitive grants to implement irrigation systems that reduce greenhouse gases and save water on California agricultural operations.
