U.S. Rep. Mike Thompson (CA-5) today released the following statement on the exclusion of the Napa Flood Project in President Obama's budget.
"This is disappointing. Our economy is still recovering and we're supposed to be doing everything we can to put people back to work. There is no better way to create jobs than through infrastructure investments like the Napa Flood Project. The flood project creates and supports thousands of jobs for those in construction and those employed by the businesses that have been able to open because of the project.
"We shouldn't drop the ball after we've come so far. I will do will do everything I can to make sure we finish the Napa Flood Project."
