Drought Emergency Continues.

With El Niño’s rainfalls falling short of expectations, there is talk of a fifth year of drought in California. Although water use has dropped to unprecedented levels, Californians are urged to continue their emergency water-saving habits. In this program, analysts focus on congressional bills that seek to help the worst drought-stricken communities and state actions to provide emergency help to workers displaced by the devastating drought.
