California water

California agriculture consumes 80% of CA water.  It contributes 2% of the CA economy.  And there are 500,000 acres of rice under cultivation in a desert climate, using >2,500,000 acre feet of water per year, equivalent of the water use of approx 7 million homes.  Could political payola be in play here?
