It’s not likely to be the hottest item at Tuesday night’s City Council meeting, but for the record, the Council will hear a report about state and federal legislative priorities for the coming year.
And according to a red-line version in the agenda packet (flip to page 762), the need to protect the Delta will be the city’s second-highest priority in 2014, ahead even of bankruptcy issues.
No. 1 on the list: Advocating for the city’s “fair share” of state funding.
Stockton’s drafted Delta position: “No actions should be taken related to the Delta that negatively impact the existing water rights, water supply, water quality, air quality, economic vitality, local land use control or sustainability of the Delta.”
No action is expected on Tuesday, according to a staff report. The proposed legislative platforms will come back to the City Council at a future date for approval.
