Harder Reacts to Gov. Newsom’s Drought Emergency Declaration
WASHINGTON — Today Representative Josh Harder (CA-10) reacted to Gov. Newsom’s Drought Emergency Declaration that covers both Stanislaus and San Joaquin Counties. Rep. Harder’s statement today builds on his repeated calls for the Central Valley to have a seat at the table on water and for the federal government to make real water infrastructure investments.
“We all know that we’ve got another drought on our hands and I’m glad to see our state taking that seriously,” said Rep. Harder. “I’m calling on the Governor to ensure that the Central Valley has a seat at the table when every decision on water gets made. This drought should serve as a wakeup call to politicians across the country. The best time to invest in our water infrastructure was yesterday. The second best time to do it is today.”
