Speech to "Water for Farmlands Forum" about PLF’s fight against the government-caused drought afflicting Central and Southern California.
Representing hard-hit farmers from the San Joaquin Valley, PLF is prosecuting a federal lawsuit challenging the federal government’s Delta smelt regulations that have drastically cut back water pumping to San Joaquin Valley farms, businesses and communities, and have forced water-rate hikes and usage cutbacks in Southern California.
In addition to providing an update on the Delta smelt litigation, Mr. Schiff will point out that the pumping cutbacks have not stopped the Delta smelt’s decline.
The Water for Farmlands Forum is a nonpartisan, educational event for the whole family, which will feature expert speakers on the government-caused drought, Q&A opportunities, and entertainment for the entire family. Read more at: http://www.patriotwatch.com/water4farmers.htm

About Pacific Legal Foundation
Pacific Legal Foundation (www.pacificlegal.org) is the oldest public interest legal organization dedicated to limited government, property rights, and a balanced approach to environmental regulations.
On May 21, 2009, PLF attorneys filed a lawsuit on behalf of several Central Valley farmers against the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, challenging federal authority to regulate for the Delta smelt, which has led to sharply reduced pumping from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.
