House Speaker John Boehner coming to Kern County to discuss California drought emergency

Boehner meets with San Joaquin Valley congressmen

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - House Speaker John Boehner was in Kern County Wednesday to meet with three San Joaquin Valley Republican congressmen to discuss California's drought emergency.

According to a representative with Congressmen David Valadao's office, they plan to introduce legislation that would allow the Sacramento-San Joaquin Valley Delta pumps to operate as long as water is available.

It would also stop the San Joaquin River restoration project, an agreement that allows water to flow to the Pacific Ocean.

The bill also calls for a committee to meet in Washington to help find long-term solutions to our water issues.
