What is Sacramento-San Joaquin Valley Emergency Water Delivery Act?

Legal Definition
The Sacramento-San Joaquin Valley Emergency Water Delivery Act (H.R. 3964) is a bill that tries to address the severe California drought. The bill would change some environmental regulations and stop or delay a project designed to restore a dried up section of the San Joaquin River (a habitat for some salmon). The bill was considered highly partisan and there are disputes over how much it would solve the water problem, or even intended to solve it, as opposed to an election year ploy unlikely to pass Congress.

It passed the United States House of Representatives on February 5, 2014 during the 113th United States Congress.
