"Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger sent a letter to Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke asking them to reverse the federal government's restrictions on water use intended to protect fish in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. Three years of drought continue at serious cost to our farms, our people and our economy, Mr. Schwarzenegger wrote. As reservoirs remain low and water deliveries unreliable, those costs increase daily. Across the state, 64 water agencies have mandatory rationing policies and there have been large numbers of job losses across the state because a protracted drought has interrupted farming in some areas."
