Time to Write the Senators Again

Update on Federal Legislation which would destroy our Central Valley Salmon Runs. Need letters to legislators. Click http://water4fish.org/campaigns/index.php/.Water to send your comments.

In early 2014 a water bill was passed by the U.S. House of Representatives which would have devastated the Central Valley salmon populations. It was sponsored by the San Joaquin agricultural members of the House. In early December, both Senators Feinstein and Boxer were instrumental in stopping an amended version of that bill in the Senate because it would have overturned the Endangered Species Act protections for the salmon. Undeterred, later in December the House passed a new bill which contained most of the same salmon killing provisions.

The new Congress will take up these bills again in 2015. Water4Fish, the Golden Gate Salmon Association and other organizations are gearing up for the battle. You can help. Letters to Senators Feinstein and Boxer thanking them for their 2014 actions and requesting their continuing help in 2015 can have a big impact.

The WaterForFish group have drafted an email that you can easily send to Senators Boxer and Feinstein. Go to www.water4fish.org and click on “Send Letters to Legislators”. Fill out your information and click on “Send Emails”.
