Sen. Dianne Feinstein pushes Senate subcommittee for water bill to address California's drought

Sen. Dianne Feinstein pushes Senate subcommittee for water bill to address California's drought

El Niño's rains didn't end California's drought, and Sen. Dianne Feinstein urged Senate colleagues Tuesday to hurry and find a compromise on a package of bills to address the water crisis in the West.

"There appears to be no immediate end in sight," Feinstein said. "The drought is going to continue through next year."

Feinstein testified Tuesday before the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee's Water and Power Subcommittee about her proposal, which includes short-term drought relief for California and long-term water projects for more than a dozen Western states.
