SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D-Discovery Bay) yesterday co-chaired the first meeting of the California Legislative Delta Caucus. The bipartisan Caucus was formed earlier this year by Democratic and Republican members of the Legislature who represent legislative districts in and around the Delta region. Frazier serves as co-chairman of the Caucus, along with state Sen. Bill Dodd (D-Napa).
“We united to form this caucus because it became necessary to address the threats facing the Delta today, and to advocate for best environmental and economic practices and policies for the Delta and its communities,” Frazier said. “We are united against the proposed Delta tunnels, which threaten to destroy the Delta’s ecosystem and destroy a way of life for millions of Californians. Much of the Delta Caucus’ focus will be identifying workable alternatives to the proposed tunnels.”
