Coalition response...Farmers in the Imperial and Coachella valleys provide a significant supply of winter food items for consumers across the nation and around the globe. Their reliance on water from the Colorado River may be in peril if efforts to restore the Salton Sea are not completed. Part of the solution relies on the continued development and preservation of the Sea as part of the Quantification Settlement Agreement. Failure to include the necessary funding to move forward jeopardizes a food supply that is vital to consumers. Efforts should be taken at the federal level that will place funding for the Salton Sea among the priority water projects in our state. At the same time, State officials should also acknowledge the consequences they create by withholding funding that has already been approved.
