Feinstein Sides with Big Donor and Agribusiness

US Senator Dianne Feinstein intervened in California’s water fight on behalf of Stewart Resnick, a wealthy and influential donor who grows water-intensive crops in the dry southern Central Valley, according to California Watch. After receiving a letter from Resnick, Feinstein urged the Obama administration to conduct a major review of the science behind the federal government’s plan to protect decimated fish populations in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. Resnick and other corporate agribusiness say the government’s effort to save salmon and smelt has diverted water away from their farms.
