Salazar Makes Surprise Visit to Farmers

By Alyssa Altman –10/13/09
Interior Secretary Ken Salazar made a surprise visit to farmers in California on Sunday where he let it slip that he spends more time on California’s water crisis than any other issue. Salazar affirmed to the farmers that he was looking into biological opinion and has asked the federal government to consider short term two-year solutions. However, Salazar warned that no solution will be immediate. He is expected to meet with California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger on Monday in Los Angeles to discuss the water issues and renewable energy.
