Vilsack met with leaders of the seven state departments of agriculture saying:

“USDA is acting to support producers... throughout the Colorado River Basin with a comprehensive approach that will assist conserving water and becoming less reliant on the Colorado River, promoting irrigation and water-use efficiency, and recovering from economic damages incurred from the unprecedented and ongoing drought.”
