The Central Arizona Project (CAP) held its annual Water Users Meeting on Wednesday, August 25. This is the first public meeting since the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation published its August 2021 24-Month Study on Monday, effectively declaring a shortage on the Colorado River for the Lower Colorado River Basin.  The much-anticipated August study predicts that the elevation of Lake Mead will continue to be below 1,075 feet – the elevation that triggers a Tier 1 shortage – for the foreseeable future.

On Thursday, AB 616, which would erode farmworkers’ choice in whether or not to join a union and threaten employers’ due process rights, passed a floor vote in the California Senate. The final vote tally was 24 Ayes-11 Noes and 5 Abstentions. AB 616 will now go to the California Assembly for a concurrence vote.
