Eggman Digs In Against Twin Tunnels

Saturday, March 5, 2016

(Sacramento) – At a joint legislative hearing of the Assembly Appropriations and Senate Government Finance Committees, Assemblymember Susan Talamantes Eggman (D-Stockton) pressed for a statewide vote on the Governor’s proposed “twin tunnels” project to carry water under the Delta to Southern California. “An enormous amount of time and energy has been wasted rebranding and repackaging the same old Peripheral Canal plan that voters rejected decades ago,” Assemblymember Eggman said. “It’s tragic that despite our ongoing drought, this flawed plan is being forced on us without any true debate even though it will not add one drop of water to California’s supply, but it will raise the water rates and potentially property taxes of millions of Californians.” Assemblymember Eggman has proposed legislation to force a statewide vote on the project.
