“These biological opinions and the balance that they will bring to the water that falls on this state will bring certainty not only to my family but several other families that farm in the state of California,” said Matt Fisher. “They are based on sound science and will help the Bureau of Reclamation maximize water to not only family farms, but rural communities and the environment.”

“President Donald Trump’s decisive action is the result of many years of scientific study and advocacy efforts by many organizations,” said CCM President and CEO Casey Creamer. “CCM would especially like to recognize Congressman Kevin McCarthy, Congressman Devin Nunes, and former Congressman David Valadao for their tireless efforts in making this monumental change in water policy a reality.”
