RIGHT from RUSS - with Russ Waymire

Are we winning or losing the Battle for our Valley's "Water" and JOBS? The Good news Congressman Devin Nunes has sponsored Water Legislation HR 1837 that would resolve the Water Crisis at its root.

We in the Ag community really thank all our urban neighbors for participating in the Water Marches and placing signs on their properties. Both actions illustrated the seriousness of the Valley Water Crisis to those driving through the Valley and to the national and international news organizations.

The Bad news is, the FACT of losing water and Jobs really hit us in the face again last year even when 2011 was a flood year. However farmers in Kings and Kern Counties received only 80% of the water they are contracted to receive in 2011 while being required to PAY for 100% of that Water in advance!

This is outrageous and puts our Valley economy at dire risk every year. Previous annual cuts were even worse, while farmers paid for 100% they only received 35%-2008, 40%-2009, 50%-2010 and only 80% in 2011 a flood year. These water cuts are forcing valley farms out of business, driving up feed cost for dairies and causing higher food cost for Families everywhere!

The good news is Congressman Devin Nunes Water Bill HR 1837, called the "The Sacramento-San Joaquin Valley Water Reliability Act" gives us an opportunity to solve the water crisis. "The Sacramento-San Joaquin Valley Water Reliability Act", HR 1837, needs to pass the US Congress, US Senate and be signed into Law by the President.

We need to take advantage of this opportunity to solve the annual water crisis threatening our way of life and our Valley economy. The Bay area politicians and their liberal allies are falsely claiming this water legislation will destroy water rights, when in fact it preserves them. Bay area politicians want to continue stealing our water to build more homes in their area to grow their economy at our expense and to flush their sewage pollution to the ocean.

You can access two web sites www.nunes.house.gov/water or Families Protecting the Valley Web Site www.familiesprotectingthevalley.com for more information on the HR 1837 Water Legislation, where Congressman Devin Nunes explains the Water Legislation in a radio interview with Ray Appleton and names those opposing this "Water Crisis" solution.

Truth is, over 60 water agencies in Northern California even support Congressman Devin Nunes Water Legislation HR 1837.

You can do your part to save our valley economy, reduce food cost and save California jobs by sending this message to your friends, relatives and elected officials. Working together we can solve this annual threat to our economy.
