Ask Feinstein and Obama to oppose the agri-business bills passed by the House


“Blame the fish” proposals backed by agri-business advanced by the House would weaken environmental protection and threaten endangered salmon, among other species, to further a single goal: diverting more water from the fragile Delta estuary into the aqueducts that serve Central Valley irrigators. The latest bill, unveiled last week, would again scrap restoration plans for the San Joaquin River.

Fortunately, (according to the Santa Rosa Press article) none of these proposals stands much chance of becoming law. There’s resistance in the Senate — though not nearly enough from California Sen. Dianne Feinstein — and the Obama administration.

Hope that’s true! Contact Feinstein and Obama and let them know you oppose the agri-business bills weakening protections for the Delta.
