(Sacramento) - Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D-Discovery Bay) has introduced legislation (Assembly Bill 1876) that will disband the controversial Delta Stewardship Council and instead place its duties with the Delta Protection Commission. “The council has too often acted as a rubber stamp for the interests of Metropolitan Water District of Southern California to force through the tunnels,” Assemblymember Frazier told the Water, Parks and Wildlife Committee as he presented AB 1876.

FAIRFIELD — Solano County supervisors on Tuesday will consider authorizing a pilot program that will provide more flexibility on how state funds are spent.

In essence, the program would allow the county to keep more of the child care funds that the county has been required to return to the state because of narrower regulations.

“Solano County is often not able to use all of the child care funding allocated by the state because of unreasonably strict state program regulations that fail to accommodate the needs of local families and child care providers,” Assemblyman Jim Frazier, D-Discovery Bay, said in a statement as the bill was traveling through the legislative steps.

Over many generations, the Delta has been overtapped and bureaucratically manhandled to provide stability to California’s water delivery system. Roughly a decade ago, the state began the difficult process of trying to develop a credible plan for the future.

In 2009, the Delta Stewardship Council was created to achieve the co-equal goals of providing a more reliable water supply and restoring the Delta’s ecosystem to protect its unique cultural, recreational, natural resource and agricultural assets.

Opinion

However, the council has neglected most of its mandate. In recent years, it has behaved more like the “Tunnels Stewardship Council,” becoming little more than a shill for the proposed tunnels project that threatens to destroy the Delta as we know it.
