The latest on California politics and government

97756064JS001_CALIFORNIA_GU.jpgThe state's biggest farm organization, the California Farm Bureau Federation, announced its unanimous endorsement this morning of Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman.

Federation President Paul Wenger said in a statement released by the Whitman campaign, "Meg Whitman will curb regulations that are straining agriculture, update the state's workplace laws to benefit both employees and employers, and address California's water problems."

The federation represents 53 county farm bureaus with 85,000 members throughout the state.

Whitman proposes creating a tax credit for agricultural companies to encourage investments in water-conservation technologies and supports the $11 billion water bond that will go to voters this year. She has also criticized a federal judge's decision to lower water supplies to some of the state's farms for environmental reasons.
