Delta bond money: who gets it?

The Sacramento Bee raises a good point: Who will control all that state bond money — perhaps $6 billion — to restore the Delta?

Water exporters prefer the state Department of Water Resources. To do that would be to put the fox — or the fox’s servants — in charge of the henhouse. If the DWR weren’t such an enabler for Delta over-drafting, the estuary would not be dying.

State Sen. Lois Wolk (D-Davis) favors the Delta Conservancy. That outfit has good representation from Delta elected officials. Which is probably what the exporters don’t like about it.  

The bond money is for Delta restoration. It should be put in the hands of people devoted to stewarding the Delta.
