Twin tunnels comments made available

Frustrated that public comments on the governor’s twin tunnels plan are not being made immediately available, an environmental group filed a public records request and is now publishing the comments on its website.

“We are doing what the government of a free country should be doing, insuring that all points of view get heard on the water tunnels issue,” said Bob Wright, an attorney for Friends of the River in Sacramento.

Wright said this morning that his organization has collected and posted 560 comments so far. The public comment period for the Delta tunnels project began in December and extends until June.

State officials have said that all comments will be available after the public comment period ends, once a final version of the plan is published. They have said that method is consistent with state and federal law, and with agency policy.
