SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D-Discovery Bay) released the following statement after U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein announced in a letter to constituents she is withdrawing support, for now, for extending portions of the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation (WIIN) Act.
“Senator Feinstein is listening to her constituents and that is to be applauded. The WIIN Act extensions are dangerous and irresponsible. In her letter, Senator Feinstein stated, ‘I strongly believe that we must continue to look for ways to address the increasing threat of drought by investing in water infrastructure, ensuring a reliable water supply, and protecting our state’s fish and wildlife.’ I agree with the senator. I look forward to working with her to identify sustainable water solutions that won’t devastate the economy and environment of one third of the state to benefit the other two-thirds.”
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.
