Gov. Brown visits L.A. to lobby for the $17-billion delta water project

With two key California WaterFix votes looming, Gov. Jerry Brown expressed confidence Thursday that water agencies will commit to enough funding to sustain the massive project.

Brown was in Los Angeles to lobby for the $17-billion proposal, which would re-engineer the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, the hub of California’s complex waterworks.

“I’m just trying to put the ball over the goal line,” he said in a telephone interview in between visits to the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California and the Southern California Assn. of Governments.

MWD’s board is scheduled to vote Tuesday on a $4.3-billion buy-in to WaterFix, which is a top priority for Brown. Two days later, the Kern County Water Agency board is expected to take its vote.

    NO HELP FROM THE GOV., PERIOD!! They live off the Gov anyway because they’re BROKE! If they want this done, use their illegals that they harbor for that Godless pathetic state to do the job, make the gutter rats work for some of that free ride and safety!

      I heartily agree; They keep talking succession; they oppose everything the conservatives put forward to thwart the illegal migrant problem,; and they have constantly opposed our Pres. on every front.
      They made their bed; now let them lie in it!!!

        Absolutely friend, they can’t make it without Gov. funding!

    I come from a city that was completely flooded back in 1997. The federal government provided us with relief funds to provide flood protection. With this protection they expected us to match funds. They also provided it over a 10 year period to allow for proper design and construction. This being the case I would provide California with approval of federal funds to provide water storage. I would only match the funds they are providing and do this over a 10 year period. I would also allow for contractors from all over the country to provide bonded bids. This would allow for a more equitable bidding process. Contracting holds a lot of unfair practices and collusion allowing local governing personal to squander the tax payers money.
