Yesterday, the House approved an amendment to an energy bill that includes drought relief legislation introduced by California Congressman David Valadao (CA-21).

The inclusion of the amendment in the previously passed Senate energy bill, the Energy Policy Modernization Act of 2016 (S. 2012), provides impetus for discussions on drought related matters, particularly for California, but also for a multitude of several other Western states with critical drought related priorities.
