The Fresno Bee reports ( http://bit.ly/1jlinuI) that a White House official said further details about the president's trip to the San Joaquin Valley on Feb. 14 would be announced in the coming days.
The drought has been a focus of action in the California State House this week. The Republican-led House on Wednesday passed a water bill authored by Rep. David Valadao, R-Hanford, passed on largely party lines.
Congressional Democrats denounced the bill and California Gov. Jerry Brown called it divisive.
The Bee reports that Sen. Dianne Feinstein has promised to propose a bill of her own.
