SACRAMENTO – Outgoing Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today issued a statement in support of the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation Act (WIIN Act).
Response by Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla, Restore the Delta, executive director:
“In the final days of his term, Governor Brown has once again betrayed the San Francisco Bay-Delta estuary and its people. The WIIN Act was supposed to be a two-year emergency measure during extreme drought. That was what we were promised by Senator Feinstein.
“Governor Brown supports a renewal of the WIIN ACT that includes backroom deals for how water will be managed in California and continuing to make Delta communities and fisheries the losers.
“We call on Senator Feinstein to drop her support of WIIN ACT renewal and to abandon partnering with San Joaquin Valley House Republicans to deplete the San Francisco Bay-Delta watershed.
“To Governor Brown, we say enough. For eight years, your policies have been about wrecking our region and our home.”
