Re "Lawmakers plan vote on new California water bond" (Page A1, Aug. 12): While writing about the last-minute sprint by the legislature to make a water bond deal, the article quoted Sen. Jim Nielsen saying, "Where have we been and where has the administration been since January?"
Excuse me? As a representative of a predominantly rural and agricultural Senate district, water must have been on the top of your list. Voters in the Senate's 4th District ask you the same questions, Mr. Senator,
Where have you been? Where has your senatorial representation been since January 2013, during the third severe drought year?
Early this year, The Bee wrote about your out-of-the-district residency status, perhaps you owe an explanation on your water bond work to the Senate 4th District voters who put you on the November ballot.
