Congressman John Garamendi Slams Efforts to Outlaw Judicial Review of California WaterFix; NRDC and Restore the Delta

From Congressman John Garamendi’s office:

Today, Congressman John Garamendi, a longtime opponent of the California WaterFix who served as Deputy Secretary of the Interior under President Bill Clinton, critiqued language in the Fiscal Year 2019 Interior and Environment appropriations bill that would prohibit state and federal judicial review of the Environmental Impact Statement or Environmental Impact Report for California WaterFix:
“It seems the twin tunnels’ proponents in Congress are afraid that the project would violate state and federal law and they are seeking to insulate themselves from any lawsuits to prevent delays in the project,” said Garamendi. “The reality is, they should be worried because the $17 billion project would be a disaster for the Delta ecosystem and economy.”
