WG Responds to Passage of Valadao Water Bill by the House

In response to the passage of H.R. 23, Gaining Responsibility on Water Act of 2017, by the U.S. House of Representatives yesterday, Western Growers President and CEO Tom Nassif issued the following statement:

“We appreciate the efforts of the House to pass the Valadao water bill, which aims to restore reliable water deliveries for countless California homes and farms. We understand this bill faces opposition from California’s Senators and several state politicians. However, as was accomplished last year with passage of the WIIN Act, we hope the Valadao legislation will spur the continued search for constructive, bi-partisan solutions to the ongoing water challenges in California and throughout the Western United States.”
