“Senator Feinstein has been committed to finding a legislative solution to California’s water challenges that treats all stakeholders fairly while also staying true to our nation’s landmark environmental laws. This bill fits that very high standard,” said Congressman Garamendi. “Even better, the provisions of the bill align with California’s voter-passed Proposition 1, which will enable better coordination between federal and state priorities.”

Senator Feinstein and Congressman Garamendi had been part of a bicameral group of legislators working to negotiate a bipartisan solution to California’s water infrastructure issues.
