The Stockton Record
Confused about the Delta? That’s understandable. The governor’s proposed $14 billion twin tunnels project is complex, and critics have proposed a number of alternatives.
The Delta Protection Commission invites the public to learn more during a meeting Thursday in the heart of the Delta – Courtland – not far from where the proposed tunnels would begin.
The commission will discuss the governor’s plan and whether to take a position on it, said Michael Machado, the former state senator who is now executive director of the commission. This could be Machado’s last meeting, as he announced last month he was stepping down.
Machado said Monday he thought it would be good to have a cross-section of presentations and perspectives, while also giving the public a chance to comment.
