Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on California water legislation being signed into law as part of S. 612, the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation Act:

“This is a great moment for California. I am proud to have worked with my colleagues in the House, Senator Dianne Feinstein, and our constituents to deliver the largest reforms to California water policy in 25 years. This water deal has been years in the making and was achieved by an unwavering commitment to our communities and state. This new law will help our communities receive more water this wet season and will help move forward storage projects that will define California’s bright future. We have not solved all of California’s water challenges, but this legislation is an incredibly positive first step. I look forward to getting back to work to build on these results. But in the meantime, I am proud to have played a role in this pivotal moment for our state’s future.”
