Sen. Cannella Issues Statement on Drought Emergency Declaration

Friday, January 17, 2014

State Senator Anthony Cannella (R-Ceres) issued the following statement following Governor Brown’s declaration of a drought state of emergency:

“As we face one of the driest years in California’s history, we must take immediate action. There is too much at stake. Lack of water means a loss of jobs, a shrinking food supply, and threatens the integrity of our drinking water. As a member of the bipartisan coalition of legislators calling upon Governor Brown to issue a drought declaration late last year, I applaud the Governor for recognizing the dire situation we all face and am committed to working with him and my colleagues in the Legislature to develop short- and long-term solutions to ensure we provide water to those that need it most. “
