The White House threatened to veto legislation on Wednesday that would curtail federal rules limiting the amount of water pumped out of California’s San Joaquin-Sacramento River delta while the state struggles with its worst drought in decades.
The Obama administration said the bill would “undermine years of collaboration between local, state, and federal stakeholders to develop a sound water quality control plan for the Bay-Delta.”
The House of Representatives is expected to vote on the Republican-backed water bill later on Wednesday.
A record-breaking dry spell has led to a water crisis that could further endanger California’s Central Valley agriculture hub.
Supporters of the bill have argued that it would help provide relief by allowing state and federal water managers to deliver water to farmers and communities during dry years.
