Congressman McClintock is very troubled by pulse flows proposed by the Bureau of Reclamation from the New Melones Reservoir for environmental purposes. As the reservoir is only one-quarter full – a dangerously low level for the start of the dry season, these flows threaten to deprive residents of Calaveras County of their drinking water supply.
U.S. Representatives Tom McClintock (CA-04) and Jeff Denham (CA-10) released a letter to key regional federal regulators calling on them to revise plans and take actions to prevent water releases that threaten to leave New Melones reservoir dry this coming summer.
Congressman McClintock delivered the following remarks on the House floor regarding the President's veto of the Keystone Pipeline:
Rep. Tom McClintock, CA-04, today introduced H.R. 979, a bill to honor Marine SSgt Sky Mote, who was killed in Afghanistan on August 10, 2012. The legislation will designate a mountain peak in the John Muir Wilderness, under which the Mote family gathered to camp every year, as “Sky Point.” Every member of the California congressional delegation is a co-sponsor of the bill.
