Water is the life blood of our valley. Our farms, rivers, businesses and communities need a reliable and clean source of water for a successful and prosperous future. I continue to work hard on increasing the amount of water we have in our reservoirs, making water move more freely to those in need and limiting the costs to its users.

I will continue to fight for local control of our precious resources by standing up against state and federal water grabs on the Stanislaus and Tuolumne rivers, proposing creative and cost-effective solutions that save threatened fish and advance our scientific knowledge of the fishery and utilizing our local reservoirs for increased storage at no cost to the taxpayer.

I’ll continue to lead efforts to strengthen and secure our flood control levees to protect vital resources and services like finally bringing improved flood control along Orestimba Creek and the San Joaquin river.

Ensuring a safe and secure water supply is a top priority for me in Congress.
