Feinstein, Boxer, And Costa Urge Federal Disaster Declaration And Drought Task Force
Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) TODAYreleased the following statement after California Governor Jerry Brown issued a state drought declaration:

“I applaud Governor Brown’s decision to issue a drought declaration. The declaration provides the state with greater flexibility to address drought conditions and lays the foundation for federal disaster assistance through a presidential declaration.

“This week Congressman Costa, Senator Boxer and I called on President Obama to approve a federal disaster declaration as soon as possible and to appoint a drought task force to work with the state to mitigate the drought’s effects on the state. Now that the governor has issued the state declaration, I hope the president will act quickly to approve the federal declaration.”
