Delta hearing protest planned today
Several legislative officials and Delta interest groups will conduct a protest rally at 11 a.m. today on the west steps of the State Capitol in Sacramento.
Delta boaters say they are concerned about a proposed legislative water package that will be heard in a conference committee hearing on Tuesday.
The package includes several contentious water issues, including the governance structure of the Bay-Delta region, water storage and provides the framework for a peripheral canal that would send additional Delta waters to Southern California and the southern San Joaquin Valley.
Those participating in today's rally include Assemblywoman Alyson Huber, D-El Dorado Hills and representatives from salmon, sportfishing and environmental interests.
