image Feinstein delays controversial drought legislation until next year 120_feinstein_official_photo.jpg original image ( 474x600) - by Dan Bacher
Ronald Stork, Senior Policy Director of Friends of the River, said, "Feinstein said it will be reintroduced and go through the regular order in the new GOP led-Congress instead of being hatched in secret in the back rooms. That's a good thing, but it doesn't matter if California's two Senators are unwilling to stand up to the San Joaquin Valley Congressmen. Somebody has to show some courage."

“It is disappointing that Senator Feinstein is not standing up for the economic engine of the San Francisco Bay Delta Estuary, its water quality and native species that serve not only California’s economic engine but Oregon and Washington as well,” said Barrigan-Parrilla, Executive Director of Restore the Delta. “Instead of calling for every available bucket of water to be shipped immediately to unsustainable industrial agriculture, Sen. Feinstein should instead be pursuing water dema...

image 30,000 people demand that Big Oil Brown halt offshore fracking 120_scmpas.jpg original image ( 1320x1020) - by Dan Bacher
This rampant fracking has only become possible because of the cozy relationship between federal and state regulators and the oil industry, the largest and most powerful corporate lobby in Sacramento. The American Lung Association's Center for Tobacco Policy and Organizing has just released a new report revealing that the oil industry spent $70 million on lobbyists in California since 2009.

text "Get Out" Anti-Homeless Law...With Phony "Appeal" Process at Afternoon Council 11-18 - by Robert Norse
City Council is set to exponentially expand a "Stay from Parks and Other Public Areas" law passed last year (MC 13,08.100). This law allows immediate Stay-Away orders from all parks and many other public areas (for one day). This happends at the whim of a police officer or ranger once an infraction of any kind is issued. Infractions have mainly been issued to homeless people for such "crimes" as sleeping, being in a park after dark, and smoking--500 Stay-Away orders in the last year. The ...

“The EPA’s critical comments letter is a death sentence for the BDCP tunnels,” said Bob Wright, FOR Senior Counsel. “EPA has said the BDCP Water Tunnels would contribute to increased and persistent violations of water quality standards in the Delta. Greater freshwater flow through the Delta, not less freshwater flow, is needed. It is time to start over and for the BDCP agencies to stop hiding alternatives that would increase flows by reducing exports."

The door has also been opened for even deeper North American integration in the areas of border security, counter-terrorism and law enforcement, which could require further merging security and intelligence sharing practices with the Department of Homeland Security. An increased continental approach to security could serve to bind North America into a single foreign policy entity.

Besides fighting California’s clean air laws, massive oil industry opposition resulted in the defeat of a bill to protect a marine protected area in Southern California from oil drilling. On August 26, State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson’s bill to ban offshore oil drilling from an area of state waters in the Santa Barbara Channel known as Tranquillon Ridge stalled on the Assembly Floor effectively killing the bill for the year.
