Representative Mike Thompson (D-California) has introduced a bill to provide $20 million in emergency financial assistance to tribes hit by the Klamath fish kill.

The Hoopa Valley, Karuk and Yurok tribes of northern California suffered when 30,000 fish died in the Klamath River. Poor water management policies of the Department of Interior are blamed.

The bill provides a total of $200 million for water conservation projects.
