The Western Governors' Association sent a letter on March 12, 2015, to express support for adequate funding of the Snow Survey and Water Supply Forecasting programs administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service. WGA's Policy Resolution Water Resource Management in the West, which expressly supports this program, states that “basic information on the status, trends and projections of water resource availability is essential to sound water management.” The letter was sent to Sen. Jerry Moran, Sen. Jeff Merkley, Rep. Robert B. Aderholt, and Rep. Sam Farr. Read, download the Letter
