To help farmers and ranchers, and lower food prices, do you support reforming the renewable fuel standard (RFS) to limit the amount of food converted to fuel?

It appears that bureaucrats are controlling the flow of water into our California farms. Government is controlling the flow of oil and just like gas, food prices are going up. We can't afford to wait. What are the immediate steps you are taking to turn on the water into the farm lands NOW?

California gets its water from its neighboring states. If the people of those neighboring states do not want their elected officials to export water to California, then the citizens of California need to respect that. Re-routing rivers and draining aquifers is extremely harmful to the environment. Wetlands are not 'wet' if they are drained or the source of its water is rerouted to grow garlic.

Fiscal Responsibility
Geoff Grossman Posted 5 years ago
Save us from our inefficient, too costly government.

Let the people know the cost of each program and let us vote agency by agency whether to keep or close each agency. If voted out by 50%+1 or more the agency terminates; the tax payer receives the savings as a tax break if earning $250,000 or less per year.

This will right size government based on the will of the people.

Pensions should be cut to the average citizens post-retirement income level. No exceptions. That would be fair to those paying the cost of these over generous pensions.

Turn the water on for the farmers...it is rediculous to put little fish first and cause the farmers to lose their ability to farm and provide for their familiy.

What are you scientists thinking? Earth has a closed atmospheric system! Nothing escapes except by extreme propulsion! Water can't possibly escape! As far as I know there is "NO WATER" in space. Every drop we ever had is still here and it's all we will ever have! KEEP IT PURE & CLEAN.

Dragon, Are you saying that using the water to grow plants and food in the San Joaquin Valley is a dirty use of the resource? I think it's flowing out through San Francisco Bay is a great way to pollute it!

Way past time to turn on the water in California. Some little fish is a very small price to pay for affordable radiation free food supplies. This is just another excuse to hold Americans hostage for power. Turn on the water now..

What do you mean, "Radiation Free"? Every drop of water used to process and/or mill uranium for nuclear power is forever radio-active that is hundreds of thousands of gallons. No matter where that contaminated water is stored it will always seek its own level and into our water potable water supply

When are you and your fellow Dems going to work for the American people and turn on the water in California? I know I don't want my food imported from China because they don't have regulations like we do. Enough already! After all we pay your salary and you WORK FOR WE THE PEOPLE!
