    California Drought Enters Fourth Year

    California is in its fourth year of a record-breaking drought, which is resulting in a shortage of water for consumers, farmers and wildlife.

The bill promises to continue the fight over funding levels for environmental agencies and anti-environmental policy riders that have absolutely no place in a spending bill. President Obama has issued a veto ...More
