It is the focus of the latest myMotherLode.com blog of Congressman Tom McClintock, who is the Subcommittee Chairmain. He says, “The Subcommittee on Water and Power has taken a great deal of testimony on what needs to be done to break down the barriers that have stopped serious development of new water storage, and this hearing begins the process of distilling that testimony into practical legislation.”
