Since returning to the state's top job for a second time in 2011, California Governor Jerry Brown has faced massive fiscal and functional problems. And he has not been shy about making bold moves to try to solve some of those problems.
"Analysis paralysis is not why I came back," he said at a press conference in Sacramento Wednesday. "I want to get shit done."
In this instance, the shit Brown hopes to get done is a $23 billion water delivery tunnel system that aims to help supply water to the state's Central Valley farms and the massive urban agglomerations in Southern California. The idea has been in the works for decades, as planners and politicians have been trying to figure out a way to get water from Northern California down through the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta without harming the fragile delta ecosystem. With the two proposed tunnels, water could be sent down underneath the delta system instead of through it, a system that has resulted in large exports of water from the delta that have played into a variety of environmental issues.

Shi# is all he has done unless you count the business donations
he is making to the Texas State Chamber of Commerce.
All I can think of is the euphemism for taking a dump, Taking the Browns to the super bowl.
The environmental nut cases will litigate any major project to a stand still.
Time for Northern Calif. to secede and keep their water!
Jerry, if I want any s**t out of you, I’ll squeeze your head.
What happened to the choo-choo train? That was a real sh*# project.
So far, all this plan does is SUCK more water with no additional supply to keep the system full of fresh water. It won't be long till this twin tunnels will either have to stop sucking, or suck sea water, or wait till more water comes from the watershed that still lacks a key mulitple use reservior on the American!!!
I want you to think of what it would take to put a concrete tunnel through a peat bog that would survive an earthquake. They don't care if they build this POS or not, any more than they do the bullet train. All they're doing is priming the pump and dump stock gambit, using union pensions to amplify the swings and then hold the bag. Taxpayers pick up that bag when they're done bleeding the system dry.
Buy Richard Trainor's book and read it.
Arnold thought that was possible when he won the recall, Gov.
Well OK then...
I have heard its his wife that runs CA.
The same farms that the fed shut off water deliveries because of a bait fish?
