Press Release

Today, Congressman Kevin McCarthy’s bill to rename the Success Dam after Richard L. Schafer, longtime Tule River Water Master and community leader, passed the Senate by unanimous consent.
Congressman McCarthy released the following statement:
“With the Senate’s passage today, this bill will now go to the White House to be signed by President Trump. Mr. Schafer has fought for decades to ensure that our communities get the water they both need and deserve. His commitment to protecting Porterville, Tulare County, and the Central Valley is unparalleled, and his passion, determination, and persistence serve as an inspiration to us all. I thank my colleagues in the Senate for passing this bill today.”
