Is nature taking a vendetta out on the state of California, or has bad policy wrought the water crisis in California? A crisis which is impacting jobs, the economy, California’s water supply, and America’s food basket, as well as decimating the immigrant labor force in the San Joaquin Valley, California, and could possibly spread to other states.
With California’s recent declaration of a statewide drought emergency, this issue is now at the forefront, with articles in National Review, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, as well as numerous other outlets. The California drought is also sparking debate in Congress, with several new bills aiming to alleviate the water issues introduced in the past two weeks, and more expected in the coming weeks.
This event complies with congressional ethics rules.
