Rep. McClintock and House Republicans Welcome Executive Action on Western Water

Scottsdale, AZ...House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) and Representatives Devin Nunes (CA-22), David G. Valadao (CA-21), Jeff Denham (CA-10), Ken Calvert (CA-42), Tom McClintock (CA-4), and Doug LaMalfa (CA-1) released the following statement today on President Trump’s executive memorandum on western water:




“The President’s announcement is an immense relief for the farmers and families of the San Joaquin Valley and communities across California.

Due to the actions of environmental extremists and overzealous bureaucrats, California has been suffering from a years-long water crisis that has wreaked havoc in Central Valley farming communities that feed tens of millions of Americans. Productive land has gone fallow and farmworkers have lost their jobs. Communities across California have also been devastated as senseless government regulations have mandated that billions of gallons of water be flushed out to the ocean and wasted.

Now, with this executive action, there is a strict timetable for rewriting the biological opinions that lie at the root of the water crisis. This executive action also prioritizes building critical projects to expand water storage in our state so that we can store more water during wet years for use in dry years.

We commend President Trump for taking decisive action today that will build on the success of the WIIN Act, cut through bureaucratic roadblocks, address Sacramento’s radical water grab, and increase the water supply to farms and communities across the state. California families can now rest assured that help is on the way.”

        Thank you President Trump for finally lighting a fire under the Liberal Democrat California Overlords. We need action on water supply.

        In one fell swoop, President Trump not only took Gavin out by the knees, he also Trumped Gerry!

            Those dams can provide water for development to make all of California's rural areas urban like Los Angeles. Suburban sprawl can spread from Elk Grove to Valley Springs.m

Trump tried to deny the drought! As much as I dislike Tom, at least he was willing to admit the reality of water not falling from the sky.

Now there is a low bar.. .

    I am curious, do you support more water storage or no? To acknowledge the drought, it seems to me you would have be for more storage and water projects. Which makes someone who is against more water storage and projects a denier of drought.

    On a kind of side note, less water from here to the coastal desert (LA, etc) makes sense to me. Coastal areas are where the majority of our people and industry, and therefore money, reside. They should use desalination to cover the majority of their needs. Plenty of technology exists, and it gets better all the time. Entire countries rely on desalination, so no excuse to not use it. Why don't the coastal residents (who are largely responsible for legislation that has ruined our watersheds) insist on this technology?

      The water if sent to SoCal will be sold by wealthy families who used to farm, but now sell water to So Cal.
      Beware of the plutocrats taking your water. This scheme is one of their money making plans, from the most corrupt administration ever.

        The water going to LA is not coming from rich families, nor are the proposed twin tunnels a wealthy family enterprise.
        So you must be for desalination, to keep our water where it belongs?

McClintock only cares about his big taxpayer provided salary, a guaranteed pension and health care. Oh yes, and his rich friends from the Westlands Water District. He has been a disaster for the average voter in the district and needs to retire to his home in southern California.
