Drought relief

(Drought relief being offered Ag community)…The state is facing possibly the worst drought in history.

The Governor has recently signed drought relief bills, benefiting the Ag communities in Central, Northern and parts of Southern California. Assemblyman Manuel Perez says the USDA has designated Riverside and Imperial Counties as natural disaster areas. This means growers in those counties could be eligible for low interest loans of up to $500,000 to help make for losses due to drought conditions.
