Tom McClintock, Chairman of the House Committee on Water and Power, has announced an oversight hearing on “Questionable Fish Science and Environmental Lawsuits: Jobs and Water Supplies At Risk in The Inland Empire.” The hearing will be held on October 18 in Highland, CA.
“Witnesses,” says the announcement, “will be by invitation only.” McClintock doesn’t want those folks down there just over the hill from the Mojave Desert to hear from any Delta people about the risks to OUR jobs and water supplies.
And McClintock’s own constituents up in the northeastern California watersheds might have a few things to tell the people of the Inland Empire about area of origin protections.
Just for fun, take a look at the Tom McClintock for Congress website. Notice that mountain stream in the background, behind all the campaign-type information.
