Good News/Bad News


Here’s the Good

Good News/Bad News: Here’s the good – December 19 Sierra Club issues a White Paper opposing the Tunnels and offers common sense alternatives that should be pursued instead: “Sierra Club offers alternatives to the governor’s giant tunnels”.

Here’s the Bad

December 21, Boxer pushes legislation to expedite environmental impact reviews so projects can be approved more quickly. The move timing makes us suspicious that it’s being motivated to expedite the tunnel project. There seems to be opposition from many about the wording in it. The US Army Corp of Engineers who does the projects is also opposed.

Sen Feinstein in the past has bent to the request of Resnick and big Agribusiness when she tried to add legislation in the Senate Jobs Bill to remove protection for endangered salmon.

Boxer’s reputation in the past has been to want to aid the environment, not abandon it.
