June 2019 “Monthly Briefing”

Alliance Supports Western Drought Resiliency and Water Supply Bill

The Family Farm Alliance earlier this month supported a bipartisan Western drought and water supply bill introduced in the U.S. Senate by Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CALIFORNIA), Cory Gardner (R-COLORADO), Martha McSally (R-ARIZONA) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-ARIZONA). The Drought Resiliency and Water Supply Infrastructure Act builds on Senator Feinstein’s 2016 California drought legislation that was included in the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation (WIIN) Act.
