Drought Tightens its Grip on the West
Alliance Engages in Congressional Drought Forums

This water year is shaping up to be one of the worst in recent Western history. With drought conditions worsening with every passing week throughout the Western U.S., Congress is taking notice. The House Water, Oceans and Wildlife Subcommittee last month hosted an oversight hearing on the status of the drought in the West, one week after Western GOP representatives conducted their own forum on the drought. The Family Farm Alliance was engaged in both events.
