WASHINGTON – Members of the Tule River Tribe of California are growing increasingly frustrated with the Department of the Interior as it continues to stall the tribe’s ability to secure clean and reliable water resources.

Leaders of the tribe recently appeared before the Water and Power Subcommittee of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee to explain the situation and to give credence to legislation that would help make the tribe’s water dreams a reality.

The tribe’s chairman, Ryan Garfield, testified July 23 in support of a Senate bill called the Tule River Tribe Water Development Act, noting that his reservation has long gone without reliable water due to suspect actions by Interior.
