Two important pieces of legislation are currently making their way through the legislature.
AB2000 (Huber) calls for the Delta Stewardship Council to report finding and declarations regarding the environmental consequences resulting from incorporating the Bay Delta Conservation Plan into the Delta Plan.
AB2421 (Berryhill) calls for the Legislative Analyst’s Office to conduct a cost benefit analysis prior to the construction of the peripheral canal.
We are asking our supporters to write two simple letters supporting these bills to the Chair of the Assembly Water, Parks and Wildlife Committee, Honorable Jared Huffman. We are asking that you send these letters as soon as possible as both bills are scheduled for a hearing review on April 24, 2012.
For AB2000, please add a sentence or two regarding your concerns over the environmental impacts on the Delta resulting from implementation of the Bay Delta Conservation Plan.
For AB241, please add a sentence or two as to why you believe tax payers and water rate payers should know the true costs for the construction of the peripheral canal and the impact of the project on the Delta area economy.
Below please find an example of a simple letter that you can personalize. You can fax your letter to Assembly Member Jared Huffman, (916) 319-2106, and you should send a snail mail copy as well.
Thank you for your support.
Yours in service,
Restore the Delta

Dear Chairman Huffman:
I am writing on behalf (name your business, group, association etc.) and as a member of Restore the Delta to express our united efforts to protect the Sacramento/San Joaquin Delta. We urge you to support (name of bill) because it will (put your reason here: AB2000 will make public the environmental consequence of implementing the Bay Delta Conservation Plan; AB 2421 will make the real costs of the peripheral canal known to California voter).
Here add one or two sentences for each letter describing either your concerns over the environmental impacts of the project (for AB2000) and cost concerns (for AB2421).
For these reasons, we support (bill number) and would greatly appreciate your assistance in this legislative effort.
