Today, Congressman David G. Valadao and California State Senator Melissa Hurtado (D-Sanger) sent Governor Newsom a letter to ensure that Fresno, Kings, Kern, and Tulare counties, whose jobs depend directly on farms, are given full consideration when contemplating actions to mitigate the negative impacts of a second year of a critically severe and dangerous drought. President Biden’s Interagency Working Group was copied on the letter.

"Not a single American tax dollar should be sent to the armed forces of oil-rich Azerbaijan - a country that ethnically cleansed Artsakh, holds Armenians POWs, and now occupies territory in the Republic of Armenia," said Congressman David Valadao. "President Biden should immediately withdraw his waiver of Section 907 and, if he won't, Congress should statutorily prevent any and all U.S. arms or aid to the Aliyev regime. The alternative - continuing to ship U.S. military aid to Baku despite its ongoing anti-Armenian aggression - sends Aliyev the green light to escalate his attacks."
