This week, Rep. Jerry McNerney, D-Stockton, announced two water efficiency bills that he wrote and introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives will be presented to the U.S. Senate. The legislation includes tax credits for water-efficient purchases and grants to help rural water agencies implement innovative water solutions.
“I’m pleased the Senate will start work on my legislation,” McNerney said. “These are commonsense programs that help consumers save money and create jobs while protecting our natural resources. And with much of the country, including California, enduring one of the worst droughts in a generation, I encourage both the House and Senate to act quickly and pass these bills.”
