The elected lawmakers of California's Legislature must have the final say – not an appointed board – on whether massive twin water tunnels are to be built under the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, says Assemblyman Jim Frazier, D-Oakley.
Pointing to cost overruns with California's high-speed rail project, lawmakers on Wednesday pressed state officials on the funding sources and ultimate price tag for the governor's water tunnel plan.
"I'm very concerned about the ever-expanding cost," Assemblyman Jim Frazier, D-Oakley, said at the hearing's outset.
Sacramento, CA – Today, Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D-Oakley), Chair of the Assembly Committee on Accountability and Administrative Review, held a fiscal oversight hearing regarding the proposed funding structure for the Bay Delta Conservation Plan (BDCP). Testimony during the committee hearing revealed significant concerns about the projected costs of the plan and the economic impacts this project will have on the Delta region and the State.
“After thoroughly examining all sides of the proposed funding structure, I believe that there is a significant amount of uncertainty on how this project will be paid for,” said Assemblymember Frazier. “The risk to ratepayers and taxpayers, should proposed funding not materialize, is considerable.”
FAIRFIELD — Assemblyman Jim Frazier will conduct a hearing Wednesday on the Bay Delta Conservation Plan to address financial risks posed by funding of the conservation plan.
"If we are to give serious consideration to the implementation of the BDCP, it is imperative that we first address the significant concerns associated with the proposed funding structure and the unidentified sources that are expected to pay for it," Frazier, D-Oakley, said in a press release.
Sacramento, CA – Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D – Oakley) has introduced legislation to help prevent accidents and deaths on California roads as a result of distracted driving due to illegal cell phone use while driving. Distracted driving is a dangerous epidemic on America's roadways. In 2012 alone 3,328 were killed in distracted driving crashes.

Assemblymember Jim Frazier has introduced a bill to make drivers think twice about picking up their cell phones. Assembly Bill 1555 will increase penalties for drivers who kill or cause a person bodily harm while talking or texting without a hands free setup.
"I care about safety," Frazier said. "If a driver knowingly commits an illegal act that results in the death or injury of another person, that driver should face the consequences."
