From The Bakersfield Californian, in a commentary by state Sen. Jean Fuller, R-Bakersfield:
“In 2009, I helped lead an effort in the Legislature to provide a plan for fixing California’s incredible water system. The result of this effort was a bipartisan plan for water supply reliability in the Central Valley and ecological restoration of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. Making water supply reliability and ecological preservation of the Delta “co-equal” goals was the first step in a long process of negotiation between many interested stakeholders.
“Every day we go without a permanent solution to the state’s water system, we put millions of Californians in peril.”
