This week, RCRC staff testified before the Senate Resources Budget Subcommittee in support of $100 million General Fund on an annual basis for the Department of Water Resources to perform critical and serious infrastructure repairs and reimbursements for flood control infrastructure. The proposal was put forth by Senator Jim Nielsen.  Senators Bill Dodd (D-Davis), Richard Pan (D-Sacramento), and Mike McGuire (D-Healdsburg) signed on to the letter circulated by Senator Neilson. The item remains open for further consideration as budget negotiations continue.
