"In Merced County I think we have twice the state average of unemployment we have upwards of 26 percent in poverty level", said Anthony Cannella who represents the 12th Senate District. Cannellla goes on to say that the Water Board's plan known as SED will not help Salmon population like they say it will. City of Merced Mayor Mike Murphy agrees, "There is a recognition that it's not just farmers that are going to suffer, but we are all going to suffer if this proposed plan goes through as lobbied. We are here in support of solutions".
