Opinion: Why California’s congressional delegation must lead on infrastructure bill

Wildfires threaten communities, homes and lives; devastating drought is hurting businesses, the environment and the farms Californians count on to grow healthy food. -Written by Dan Errotabere, a farmer in the San Joaquin Valley town of Riverdale, and John Monroe, who farms near the town of Arbuckle in the Sacramento Valley.
