    POLITICS | Senator Grove Responds to Governor’s Latest Water Restrictions

    SACRAMENTO – Today, Senate Republican Leader Shannon Grove (R-Bakersfield) issued the following statement after Governor Newsom’s administration released its Incidental Take Permit (ITP) which will govern water delivery within the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta for the California State Water Project (SWP). Included in the ITP are provisions which will reduce water supply for Kern County and other regions:
    “As the Senate Republican Leader, I have worked alongside the Governor throughout the COVID-19 crisis to support efforts to mitigate the effects of this pandemic. However, I will not stand idly by while his actions put America’s food security in jeopardy.
    “The Governor has disregarded our food producers, workers and families by proposing to restrict water flows to a region which supplies one of America’s most essential needs – food.

    “California grows much of the nation’s food and is home to the top three agricultural-producing counties. It is immoral to eliminate the water which grows the food that stocks America’s pantries. During a time when Californians are reliant on state leadership to support basic needs, the Governor needs to stand up and meet this moment by investing in our nation’s food security,” said Senate Republican Leader Shannon Grove.

    Senator Shannon Grove represents California’s 16th Senate District which encompasses large portions of Kern, Tulare and San Bernardino counties and including the cities of Bakersfield, Barstow, California City, Exeter, Frazier Mountain, Joshua Tree, Mojave, Needles, Ridgecrest, Rosamond, Taft, Tehachapi, Twentynine Palms, Tulare, Visalia, Yucca Valley and portions of the Kern River Valley. She is the Senate Republican Leader. Follow her on Facebook and Twitter.

    A real governor would be putting the emphasis on increased water storage instead of restrictions at the valve.
