Drought Panel Seeks Local Input During Congress of Cities.

The National Drought Policy Commission will meet in Los Angeles during NLC's annual Congress of Cities.

The commission will hold a public hearing on December 1 at which local officials with ideas or experiences that could contribute to the formulation of a national drought policy are invited to testify.

The commission, comprised of federal, state, and local officials, will submit a report to Congress next year on how to improve the federal response to drought emergencies. Scottsdale Mayor Sam Kathryn Campana is a member of the commission.

The December 1 hearing will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in downtown Los Angeles at the offices of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (700 North Alameda Street.) Afternoon transportation will be provided to and from the hearing from the convention center for NLC delegates wishing to testify.
