California will not receive water aid after Senate rejects water bill

Bakersfield representatives' efforts came short Monday when the US senate rejected a bill that would have helped the South Valley get more water. 

The proposed farm bill was turned down by the senate just a  week after House Speaker John Boehner came to Kern County for talks on the water crisis. 

He and Representatives Kevin McCarthy, David Valadao, and Devin Nunes will continue to find a solution for California's ongoing drought problem.
