Sacramento-San Joaquin Valley Emergency Water Delivery Act February 5, 2014
John Garamendi, D-CA
"Mr. Chairman, I don’t know if it is proper to ask you a question, but is this February 2? I am reminded of the movie “Groundhog Day.” We continue to repeat what happened yesterday and the year before. This is a repetition of a bill that came to the floor 2 years ago. It was a bill that had a lot of different pieces to it but was very, very simple in what it accomplished, or attempted to accomplish, and that was to take water from someone—the environment, fish, and the delta, farmers, communities, Contra Costa County, the East Bay of San Francisco—and deliver it to someone else. That would be the San Luis Unit of the Central Valley Project. That was 2 years ago. It must be February 2. It must be Groundhog Day because we are doing it all over again. Whatever little whistles and bells and bows you want to put on it, this is essentially a theft of water from someone to give to somebody else. Plain and simple, that is what it is about."
