California Farm Bureau Federation Update: House Bill Brings New Attention to Drought Issues

2014/12/16

December 10, 2014 - By Dave Kranz - A vote in the U.S. House of Representatives this week renewed discussion of California drought relief in Washington, D.C., and set the stage for the likelihood of additional legislation in the new Congress next year. Legislation known as the California Emergency Drought Relief Act of 2014 was introduced in the House last week by Rep. David Valadao, R-Hanford, and cosponsored initially by six other California representatives: Kevin McCarthy, R-Bakersfield; Ken Calvert, R-Corona; Jim Costa, D-Fresno; Doug LaMalfa, R-Richvale; Tom McClintock, R-Elk Grove; and Devin Nunes, R-Tulare. The full House passed the bill on Tuesday. The representatives said they introduced the bill after negotiations with the Senate on a long-term drought-relief package ended last month. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., who authored a Senate drought bill that passed in May, had been involved in discussions with California House members in efforts to reconcile her bill with earlier legislation adopted by the House. On Nov. 20, Feinstein announced the negotiations had been suspended, saying it had become clear to her that participants in the talks would be "unable to present an agreed-upon proposal before Congress adjourns this year." The sponsors of the Emergency Drought Relief Act said their bill contained short-term provisions that had been agreed upon in the negotiations on the long-term legislation, and that Congress needed to act immediately. "I will not let this year end without exhausting every possible option to bring relief to the Central Valley," Valadao said. The House vote of 230-182 sent the bill to the Senate, but political observers said the Senate appeared unlikely to act on the measure—leaving the question of California drought relief to the new, Republican-led Congress that will be sworn in next year. California Farm Bureau Federation President Paul Wenger welcomed introduction and passage of the House bill, saying it kept the impact of the California drought "front and center" in the nation's capital. "We hope this legislation prompts continued discussions in Congress and elsewhere, about what the federal government can and should do to make our water system work more efficiently for the benefit of people, the environment and the economy," Wenger said. The House bill would direct federal water and fisheries agencies to act within the parameters of existing laws and regulations to maximize the ability to capture high water flows during storms. Its provisions would remain in effect until the end of Gov. Jerry Brown's existing drought proclamation or the end of the next water year, Sept. 30, 2016. Wenger noted that even during drought years such as those California has experienced, there are strong storms that generate significant runoff. "Too often during the past three years, that runoff has been allowed to flow unabated to the ocean," he said. "Had we been able to store more of that runoff, we could have eased at least some of the severe water shortages our farms and communities face today." December and January typically represent the wettest months of the California rainy season, the bill's supporters noted, and both the federal Central Valley Project and State Water Project need to be allowed to capture water when it becomes available. In a statement issued prior to the House vote, McCarthy, who serves as House majority leader, referred to a report published last week by the American Geophysical Union, which used tree-ring studies to estimate the last three years have been the driest period California has experienced in at least 1,200 years. McCarthy said government policies have worsened the impacts of the drought. "Ill-conceived policies have continued to prioritize the well-being of fish above people, meaning precious water is released into the ocean rather than directed to our local communities in need," he said. Costa said the provisions in the House bill would provide "one more tool to bring relief to the San Joaquin Valley," which he said "has suffered far too long because of our broken water system," while Nunes pointed to the cities, towns, rural homes, schools and churches that are "running dry."

December 14th -- Closing out the 113th Congress

2014/12/14

To view this full article, please click here. Dear Friend, This past week in Washington we concluded our final session of the 113th Congress. Among the many legislative measures we considered was a bill authorizing federal funding for the coming fiscal year. After careful consideration, I voted against the measure, which failed to take action against the President’s executive amnesty plan and also included a number of non-budgetary items that I believe should have been more thoroughly reviewed. One of the first things I plan to do after the 114th Congress is sworn in next January is to join my fellow House Republicans in passing a bill that would block the president’s executive action on immigration. I have been clear that the President’s executive amnesty order is a blatant unconstitutional overreach of executive power which cannot be left unanswered. I also look forward to working with the incoming Republican Senate in addressing our need for water storage and flood control infrastructure, tackling the President’s amnesty plan, and continuing to reduce federal spending and regulations. We have another busy year ahead of us, and I am thankful for the opportunity you have given me to represent your voice here in Congress. To learn about how I can serve you and to follow me throughout the week, please visit my website. and stay in touch with me on my Facebook page as well!  Sincerely, Doug LaMalfa   Rep. LaMalfa urges passage of Emergency Drought Legislation, H.R. 5781. To view his speech on the House Floor, click here. I was pleased that H.R. 5781, a measure which I have proudly co-sponsored, passed out of the House of Representatives with my support on a 230-182 vote. Unfortunately, California’s Senators refused to act on the bill and our water crisis remains serious. H.R. 5781, the California Emergency Drought Relief Act, aims at providing immediate, emergency relief from California’s historic water crisis through two critical components: flexibility to store additional water when winter storms cause high river flows and protections for the North State’s senior and area of origin water rights. It is simply reckless that we continue to watch ill-conceived federal policies allow billions of gallons of water to be diverted away from our communities to just flow out to sea. It’s time to bring an end to the delays and inaction coming from Washington and start moving forward towards a long-term solution that adequately addresses our state’s water needs.To learn more about H.R. 5781, click here. The state of California is going through the worst drought in over a century, creating devastating conditions for our farms, families and ranches. Lake Oroville, above, has a record-low water level. This past Wednesday, the House unanimously passed H.R. 5059, the Clay Hunt Suicide Prevention for American Veterans Act, a measure to increase access to mental health services available to veterans as well as implement sorely-needed accountability within the VA. According to a 2012 report from the Department of Veterans Affairs, an average of 12-22 veterans have committed suicide each day over the past decade. This statistic deeply saddems me. Our veterans are brave men and women who have endured great hardships for our country, and I am determined to ensure they have access to the care they rightfully deserve. Although there is certainly more work to be done, this legislation is a critical step in improving care for our veterans and urge the Senate to advance this measure.   It's always such a joy to meet with ambitious and inspiring youth from our district doing neat things out here in D.C.

Rep. LaMalfa Opposes Budget Measure

2014/12/12

Washington, DC – Rep. LaMalfa (R-CA) today voted against a measure setting federal funding for the coming fiscal year.    “After careful consideration, I voted against the government spending measure that failed to take action against the President’s executive amnesty plan and included a number of nonbudget items. Having thoroughly reviewed the bill, I felt that there were too many elements of the package that were not adequately discussed and were not directly related to funding government operations," continued LaMalfa. "Congress should have more fully considered these elements, and I have been clear in my belief that we must act to defund the President’s amnesty plan.”   “While Congress is grappling with these issues, the North State is experiencing flooding that is affecting homes, businesses and families. My first steps in working with the incoming Republican Senate will be to address our needs for water storage and flood control infrastructure, tackling the President’s amnesty plan and continuing to reduce federal spending and regulations.” Doug LaMalfa is a lifelong farmer representing California’s First Congressional District, including Butte, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou and Tehama Counties.  ### Read More

Rep. LaMalfa Votes to Provide California Short-Term, Immediate Drought Relief

2014/12/09

Washington, DC – Rep. Doug LaMalfa (R-CA) today voted in favor of legislation aimed at providing immediate, emergency relief from California’s historic water crisis. H.R. 5781, the California Emergency Drought Relief Act, which would sunset in eighteen months, includes two critical components: flexibility to store additional water when winter storms cause high river flows and protections for the North State’s senior and area of origin water rights. “The state of California is going through the worst drought in over a century, creating devastating conditions for our farms, families and ranches.  The measure we passed today represents a bipartisan, noncontroversial fix that simply gives federal water managers the flexibility they need to conserve excess water during the wettest months,” said LaMalfa. “It’s simply reckless that we continue to watch ill-conceived federal policies allow billions of gallons of water to be diverted away from our communities to just flow out to sea. It’s time to bring an end to the delays and inaction coming from Washington and start moving forward towards a long-term solution that adequately addresses our state’s water needs. I urge the Senate to act quickly to advance this critical measure and help prevent yet another year of damaging drought conditions for California.” The California Emergency Drought Relief Act would: Increase water supplies to Northern Californians who have seen their water allocations reduced to 50%, or even 0%. Under this bill, Northern Californians would receive a minimum of 75% of their water right in drought years. Ensure more flood flows are held at North State reservoirs rather than being diverted to the sea, resulting in more water stored during winter months. Enhances North State water rights and creates additional area of origin protections. Promotes federal water storage projects in the state by expediting the completion of needed reviews to approve water transfer requests associated with voluntary fallowing of non-permanent crops. Holds federal agencies accountable by utilizing a streamlined process to ensure regulatory decisions related to projects that provide additional water resources are made it a timely process. H.R. 5781 passed out of the House of Representatives on a 230-182 vote and will be sent to the Senate. Video of Rep.

New Calif. drought relief bill faces opposition

2014/12/08

A new drought-relief bill a California congressman has proposed to make the most out of this summer's negotiations with U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein has itself encountered opposition from Democrats in the House of Representatives.     A California congressman’s drought relief bill is encountering criticism from Democrats in the House of Representatives. U.S. Rep. David Valadao, R-Calif., has introduced legislation his office says is a watered-down version of a bill that passed the House earlier this year but couldn’t be reconciled with a Senate measure sponsored by Sen. Dianne Feinstein. The legislation would allow more water to be pumped from the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta during storms but wouldn’t affect the Endangered Species Act, explained Kevin Eastman, spokesman for Rep. Doug LaMalfa, R-Calif., a bill cosponsor. “The primary effect of this bill ... is to allow increased access to water in the Sacramento watershed and Delta during winter storms when water levels are higher than they normally are,” Eastman said. “Our goal is to pass this bill and allow California to bank more water from what storms we do get so we’re prepared for the coming year.” But seven Northern California Democrats in the House say the bill is another attempt to “override” environmental laws and would make it difficult for state and federal water agencies to make real-time water decisions. “The idea that this bill is a ‘compromise’ is laughable,” said a statement by Reps. Jared Huffman, George Miller, Mike Thompson, Doris Matsui, Jerry McNemey, John Garamendi and Ami Bera. The lawmakers lamented that the bill wasn’t reviewed by the Natural Resources Committee or by affected water agencies or industries. “It is clear that this bill was thrown together without any input from anyone other than those who stand to benefit from its passage,” they said. The bill — House Resolution 5781 — was introduced last week after Feinstein, D-Calif., announced that efforts to merge her bill with the earlier House version were dead for the year. Legislation by Feinstein and Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., offered $300 million in aid and would have directed federal agencies to be as flexible as the law allows in facilitating water transfers. The bill that passed the GOP-led House in February would have eased environmental restrictions on pumping from the Delta to send water south, where some 500,000 acres of cropland was expected to be idle this summer. Feinstein worked with House Republicans for months to try to arrive at a compromise that could pass both chambers, drawing criticism from environmental and fishing groups and some members of Congress from her own party. She vows to try again in 2015, The Associated Press reported. Feinstein’s office did not respond to the Capital Press’ inquiry as to whether she has an opinion on the latest bill. Valadao’s bill won praise from California Farm Bureau Federation president Paul Wenger, who said in a statement that the legislation keeps the issue “front and center” in Washington. “When we have storms such as those that have reached California this week, we simply must be able to capture as much of that runoff as possible,” Wenger said. Eastman rejects criticism that the new bill would undermine environmental regulations, arguing it is “almost entirely language that California Republicans in the House worked on in negotiations with Sen. Feinstein,” who’s known as an environmental stalwart. “We’re very optimistic that we have a bill that, if you take an honest look at it, is very non-controversial,” Eastman said. “It’s temporary in nature, it addresses an emergency the state is facing now. We’re going to pass it out of the House, and we’re optimistic that Sen. Feinstein and other members of the Senate will take a fair look at it. We have a good opportunity to pass it in the Senate as well.” Online House Resolution 5781: http://valadao.house.gov/uploadedfiles/hr5781.pdf Read More

December 7th -- Christmas Comes to the Capitol

2014/12/07

  To view this full article, click here. Dear Friend, Earlier this month, President Obama announced his executive order to unilaterally provide millions of unlawful immigrants with protection from deportation and work permits. Not only do I disagree with the President’s plan for immigration reform, but I also believe his methods do not reflect the Constitutional design of separation of powers. To hear more of my thoughts, you can view my floor speech addressing the President's amnesty plan here. I have and will continue to work with my colleagues in Congress to challenge to the President’s unlawful action. As we weigh various courses of action, I am eager to hear your thoughts on the matter. I am honored to represent your voice in DC, and want my actions to reflect your perspective. To follow me throughout the week, stay in touch with me on my Facebook page as well!  Sincerely, Doug LaMalfa This Week in D.C. Last Wednesday I was pleased to vote for a measure which I have proudly cosponsored: H.R. 647, the Achieving a Better Life Experience Act (the ABLE Act). The measure allows individuals with disabilities to create tax-free savings accounts for qualified expenses such as medical, post-secondary education, housing, and transportation. A program that states can choose to opt into and maintain, it brightens the future and levels the playing field for those who face significant, unmerited challenges in life by giving them the chance to live and work independently.  Backed by more than half of Congress with 380 House co-sponsors and 74 Senate cosponsors, this measure shows that common sense conservative solutions can be accomplished with bipartisan support.   [[{"fid":"287","view_mode":"full","fields":{"format":"full","field_file_image_alt_text[und][0][value]":"","field_file_image_title_text[und][0][value]":""},"type":"media","attributes":{"style":"height: 248px; width: 350px;","class":"media-element file-full"}}]] Rep.

Rep. LaMalfa Votes to Nullify Obama’s Executive Amnesty

2014/12/04

Washington, DC – Rep. LaMalfa (R-CA) today voted in favor of legislation to prohibit President Obama, or any future presidents, from exempting or deferring the removal of immigrants unlawfully present in the United States. The measure also reaffirms that only Congress has the legal authority to write immigration laws and that the President is required, under the Constitution, to enforce those laws. “We have a President who effectively is trying to rewrite our country’s laws in order to allow five million unlawful immigrants to live and work here legally, a power solely granted under the constitution to Congress. This is not only a stark violation of our rule of law, but shows a complete disregard for the principle of checks and balances our nation was founded on,” continued LaMalfa. “It’s simply lawless and if we allow this to go unchallenged, we will be setting a very dangerous precedent for our country. This legislation is about standing up for the will of the American people and safeguarding our constitutional system.” H.R. 5759, the Preventing Executive Overreach on Immigration Act of 2014, passed the House of Representatives today on a 219-197 vote, and will be sent to the Senate.

Rep. LaMalfa Votes to Expand Opportunities for Individuals with Disabilities

2014/12/03

Washington, DC – Rep. Doug LaMalfa (R-CA) today voted in favor of legislation that would allow states to voluntarily establish and maintain a new tax-exempt savings account for individuals with disabilities to cover expenses such as education, housing, transportation, employment training, health, and related expenses. Similar to 529 plans, which permit families to save for a child’s higher-education investment fund, a 529A, or ABLE, account aims to provide families of a disabled child the opportunity to set aside money for long-term expenses. “Individuals with disabilities should not be held back due to outdated policies that limit their opportunities to work, go to school, or plan for their future.  This common sense legislation is about ensuring everyone has the ability to live their lives to their fullest potential,” continued LaMalfa. “By providing a vehicle to better save for long-term expenses and care, the ABLE Act will provide families, who already face tremendous financial burdens, the peace of mind they need in planning for their children’s future.”    H.R. 647, which Rep. LaMalfa cosponsored, passed the House of Representatives today on a 404-17 vote, and will be sent to the Senate.

California's GOP Congressmen Flex Muscles with New Water Bill

2014/12/03

89.3 KPCC By Kitty Felde After the collapse of secret negotiations that sought to change federal policy to send more water to Central Valley farmers, California's Republican lawmakers have come up with Plan B: a completely new water bill. It's an early sign of the rising power of Republicans who will control both the Senate and the House in January. Last night, Hanford Republican Congressman David Valadao introduced the ‘‘California Emergency Drought Relief Act of 2014.’’ Co-sponsors include Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Bakersfield), Ken Calvert (R-Riverside) and Jim Costa (D-Fresno).  Calvert says the measure is "just a piece of the legislative fix that our state so desperately needs." The measure is designed to bring more water to Central Valley farmers over the next 18 months, but it could also effect taps in Southern California. The bill would make it easier for the Metropolitan Water  District, the agency that provides water to 18 million Southern Californians in six counties, to purchase extra water in drought years.  But there is also a chance that the state would have to replenish some of the federal water sent to farmers. MWD gets most of its water two ways: from the Colorado River and from the state water project. Last year, because of the drought, the state reduced MWD's allotment to just 5% of the water it was scheduled to get. MWD had water in the bank: it's reservoirs. Every year, the MWD tops them off by purchasing small amounts of water - about 10% of the total amount - from other places. Often, it's water sold by rice farmers and others in Northern California. But in a drought year, while MWD pays for 100% of its water purchase, it only gets about 25% of the water because water managers say it's needed for those with more senior water rights or for environmental reasons. The Valadeo bill guarantees that even in a drought year, when agencies like MWD purchase water, they get every drop.  But the bill could also reduce the flow of water through the state aqueducts to the MWD. That's because water managers have to balance the bill's requirement to increase water flows from the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta with environmental protections. If federal water flows are increased to Central Valley farmers, the state water project might have to kick in more than its share to protect endangered species - and that means less water flowing to Southern California. MWD General Manager Jeffrey Kightlinger says that's been one of his agency's chief concerns.  While lawmakers say it's not their intent to backfill the federal allocation with state water, MWD lawyers are carefully scouring the bill to be sure. Environmentalists are not happy. Doug Obegi of the Natural Resources Defense Counsel calls the bill "a real threat" to migrating salmon and thousands of fishing jobs. Patricia Schifferle of Pacific Advocates says the bill makes Central Valley corporate farmers the winners and endangered species the losers.  "It is no surprise the winners were the ones at the table," says Schifferle. She agrees with the MWD that it will take "a number of lawyers and possibly the courts to determine the impacts of all the embedded language." Both the House and Senate have already passed individual drought measures, but there are rivers of differences between them. It appeared that an agreement had been reached on a compromise bill before Thanksgiving, but the deal dried up. Congressman Calvert says this new bill includes "negotiated text" from those sessions between House members and Senator Dianne Feinstein.  So why move a last minute bill? Co-sponsor Doug LaMalfa (R-Redding) says its because no water legislation has gotten through both houses so far. "We need to be throwing every option and opportunity up there to move the ball."  The bill is likely to get a vote - without a hearing - next week, and is likely to pass the House.  Grace  Napolitano (D-Santa Fe Springs) says she'll vote no. "There's nothing there for Southern California." She's been pushing for legislation that cleans up the aquifers and teaches conservation. Jared Huffman (D-San Rafael) also opposes the bill and has put his faith in Senator Feinstein to put the brakes on in the Senate and bring the issue to a public hearing. "Sunlight has a wonderful disinfectant quality," he says. He says hearings allow lawmakers to hear from experts who understand water and not produce "lousy legislation like what we're considering here." So far, Feinstein has been silent on the matter. Feinstein's office says they saw the bill  for the first time last night. LaMalfa says the legislation reflects agreements on particular issues they reached with Senator Feinstein. "Some of our other Senators are standing in the way of that, " says LaMalfa, a reference to Boxer, who heads the Senate environment committee.  Late Wednesday, Boxer released a statement that "this measure could reignite the water wars by overriding critical state and federal protections for California." Pressure from the GOP-led House presents a tough choice for Senators Boxer and Feinstein: They can accept this short-term bill now or face an even less attractive measure in the new year when Republicans control both the House and the Senate.
