Restore the Delta in Full Support of Redrafting Water Bond;
Applauds Senator Wolk’s SB 42
SACRAMENTO—Restore the Delta today applauded Senator Lois Wolk (D-Davis) for introducing SB 42, The California Clean, Secure, Water Supply and Delta Recovery Act of 2014, legislation to put a new water bond before voters to address the crisis in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and other critical water issues facing California. Restore the Delta is in full support of SB 42.
“Restore the Delta is fully in favor of a water bond that puts levee restoration and habitat improvements at the center of Delta restoration. Restore the Delta also supports a water bond that promotes regional self-sufficiency throughout California as a way to reduce water exports from the Delta and help to bring clean drinking water to communities in need,” said Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla, executive director of Restore the Delta. “I have full confidence that a water bond proposed by Senator Lois Wolk is a balanced and fair piece of legislation that will protect the Delta and improve water reliability for other California communities.”
