CalWatchdog Morning Read — April 7, 2016

by CalWatchdog Staff | April 7, 2016 9:17 am

Good morning!

We just got back from Klamath, where Gov. Jerry Brown signed an agreement to remove four dams along the Klamath River.

Brown said the removal was about “correcting mistakes,” a nod to the indigenous people who inhabit the area and have for years suffered from the ill effects the dams cause on the river and its fish. How much does a correction cost? California could contribute anything from zero dollars to as much as $250 million.

And while Wednesday’s event was a joyous occasion for all who attended, some locals are not pleased with the deal.

CalWatchdog[1] has more.

In other news:

CLARIFICATION: In yesterday’s Morning Read, we said Democrat Joaquin Arambula likely avoided a November run-off for a Fresno Assembly seat after his victory in Tuesday’s special election. While it’s true he avoided a run-off, Arambula will still have to compete in the June primary and possibly in the November general, as he’s filling out the term of the assemblyman he replaced.


Session[6] begins at 9 a.m. A committee will discuss improving female participation in STEM.


Session[7] begins at 9 a.m. There’s a full slate of hearings.

Gov. Brown: 

Will speak[8] at the 26th Annual Crime Victims’ Rights event in Sacramento.
