I oppose S. 243: A bill to provide assistance for watersheds adversely affected by qualifying natural disasters. Still haven't fixed Sandy, and we're back to wildlife again? Instead investigate Geo Engineering SAG/SRM WX operations. I don't see why people aren't suing except for the FACT they don't know about what's happening in the SKY.
