PNP comment: This should relieve our concerns about the CA. Water Bond money going to destroy the Klamath dams. There is much more pressing concerns — like protecting and upgrading present dams — than taking 4 hydro-electric dams out that are 200 miles up the Klamath River. — Editor Liz Bowen
In 2014, California voters approved a $7.5 billion bond that would go to several water projects. So far, only 2 percent of the money has been used and the rest has been sitting in a fund untapped.
In light, of the Oroville Dam scare in early February, lawmakers are looking to focus their attention on flood management projects, like fixing old dams and maybe building new ones.
