The comment period closing date associated with revisions on Pre-harvest Product Testing in the LGMA-approved guidelines has been extended to June 15, 2022 to grant interested parties additional time to draft proposed revisions to the metrics or submit comments. Western Growers will host a web discussion to publicly present and discuss all proposed changes and comments received during the comment period. The webinar date will be confirmed once the comment period concludes.

AB 2639, a bill that would have accelerated the adoption of the Bay-Delta Plan, was defeated in the California Assembly last week due to a coordinated effort of ag and water stakeholders working with key legislators.

The bill, authored by Assemblymember Bill Quirk (D-Hayward) additionally would have prohibited the State Water Board from issuing any new water rights permits, putting the Sites Reservoir project in danger.
