SACRAMENTO – U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, in a tweeted statement, said that she supports investing “in sustainable water projects that protect critical ecosystems,” and that she opposes extending the “controversial and detrimental policies of the WIIN Act.” Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D-Discovery Bay), co-chair of the California Legislative Delta Caucus, released the following statement:
“I join others who have praised Senator Harris for showing true leadership on water policy that is right for all Californians. I ask other members of California’s delegation in Washington to follow Harris’ lead and do what is best for our state: oppose the WIIN Act extensions. This federal overreach is a threat to water quality in Northern California and the natural environment of the entire Bay-Delta region. Senator Harris’ approach balances the interests of Delta communities, local farmers and the ecosystem of the Delta with the needs of agriculture across the state.”
Assemblymember Frazier represents the 11th Assembly District, which includes the communities of Antioch, Bethel Island, Birds Landing, Brentwood, Byron, Collinsville, Discovery Bay, Fairfield, Isleton, Knightsen, Locke, Oakley, Pittsburg (partial), Rio Vista, Suisun City, Travis AFB, Vacaville and Walnut Grove.
