State Sen. Lois Wolk spells it out in a SacBee op-ed piece:
“The Delta community won strong protections in this bond:” she writes.
“• It will have a voice in every Delta habitat project. This bond specifies that the state will coordinate and consult with the city or county in which a project occurs.
“• It funds the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Conservancy and gives it the opportunity to deliver on the important charge it was given in 2009.
“• It includes protections that ensure that funds will not be used for the design, construction, mitigation, operation or maintenance of Delta conveyance facilities.
“• It ensures that any bond funds used for environmental flows will be long-term, will not supersede any regulatory requirements, and will not be used to support the Delta tunnels.
“• Furthermore, the Delta region will receive funding for levee improvements, water supplies and ecosystem restoration.”
