Feds Announce Another $14 Million for California Drought

Posted: Updated:

Federal officials have pledged another $14 million to help California through its worst drought in recorded history.
 
Officials for the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and Natural Resources Conservation Service announced the funding at a Sacramento news conference on Wednesday that included key state and federal agencies responding to the drought.
 
They say the money will be used to improve water management and conservation. The announcement came a day after U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack committed $20 million to California's drought response.
 
The California Department of Water Resources and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service were among the other agencies that participated in the news conference. They said they were united in their efforts to help California through the drought.  (AP)
