Congress to Vote on Farm Bill

Our drought coverage continues with some possible good news for farmers in the south valley.

One fix could pass congress by Jan. 31.

It's a proposal that calls for turning on the delta pumps this year and next.

It also calls for an end to restoration flows in the San Joaquin River.

Many believe it's waste for farmers not to be getting that water.

50,000 acre-feet of water gets flushed to the ocean, when many would rather see that water go to farmers.

A vote on the farm bill is expected by the end of the week.
