Westlands spent much of last year decrying a lack of water, then turned around and traded a huge water surplus to LA in a deal worth some $30 million. Meanwhile, California agriculture in general is doing just fine, according to news reports and official statistics. When does Westlands become the boy who cried wolf too many times?
And please, just because Westlands thinks it should get 100% of its contract water deliveries every year, that doesn't mean that's the way it should be. By law, they are junior water rights holders. Their contracts never guaranteed 100% deliveries. They knew that when they signed their contacts, and when they built their heavily taxpayer subsidized water district back in the 1960s. Why should the salmon industry, thousands of fishing families, and Delta farmers suffer because Westlands now wants to change the law in their favor?

Have I got news for you, agriculture in general is NOT doing "just fine" you have thousands of acres dry and burned up crops, spent a few months running from San Francisco, to Bakersfield and Fresno, get out there and hit the back roads and talk to the farmers, they are not doing fine, ask them why so many acres have not been planted..
