President Signs Executive Memo on Western Water

The Family Farm Alliance and other Western agricultural organizations earlier this month applauded President Trump for taking the unusual move of issuing an executive memorandum intended to reduce regulatory burdens and promote more efficient environmental reviews of water infrastructure projects in the West. The president signed an Executive Memorandum ordering enhanced coordination between Federal agencies that oversee Endangered Species Act (ESA) reviews and promised to finalize biological opinions under the ESA for state and federal projects that move water in California and other areas of the West.
