California plan would pay farmers to grow less to save water

For Regina Chichizola, executive director of Save California Salmon, the agreement exemplifies "California’s commitment to maintaining its archaic and undemocratic water rights laws.”

"These laws were created during a time when people of color and women could not vote or own land, and California policy supported the genocide of native people," she said. "These agreements seem to also put the needs of large landowners and crop exporters above fish and cities despite our drying climate.”
