Crisis Avoidable?

Feb 17, 2017

Lawmaker misleads in claims about Oroville dam crisis

Republican state Assemblyman Travis Allen recently claimed the Oroville Dam emergency in Northern California "was entirely avoidable."

The Orange County lawmaker also blamed Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown for the crisis.

"The Oroville dam failure was entirely avoidable: California passed a $7.5 Billion water bond in 2014 but Jerry Brown didn't spend $1 on new water storage or improvements to existing infrastructure like Oroville," Allen said in a press releaseon Feb. 13, 2017.
