FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Friday, November 30, 2018

Contact: Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla, Restore the Delta, 209-479-2053

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.”

    Dear Senator Feinstein,
    Now is the time to STOP THE TUNNELS!
    Please choose the best interests of California NOT the Special Interests and opportunists lobbying for the water that is needed in Northern California. If you side with McCarthy et al you will betray all but Special Interests and Republicans.
    We expect better from you.
    Thank you for siding with the people of California.
    Protect our waterways.
