A Rare Legislative Opportunity: Join Restore the Delta on February 28th!

Californians will have a rare legislative opportunity to voice opposition to Governor Jerry Brown’s Delta Tunnels project. The California Senate Natural Resources and Water Committee will be holding an important meeting to hear the public’s thoughts on Tuesday, February 28th. 
Restore the Delta’s goal is to fill the seats and the halls with the voices of people and friends of the San Francisco Bay-Delta estuary. The Delta needs as many people as possible to make a powerful statement with our Californian legislators. This may be one of our last public opportunities at the Capitol to oppose the project.

Please plan to make a one-sentence comment using this format:

Chair Hertzberg and Committee Members, my name is ________________, and I oppose the Delta Tunnels because ____________________________________________________.

We recommend choosing a reason that reflects both your personal and public interest. Costs, environmental protection, agriculture, water quality, public health, fish, wildlife, and drinking water are a few reasons to oppose this plan. For more details on the Delta Tunnels, click here.
