Statement by Courtney Cuff on Veto of Southern California Water Project
NPCA has been one of the leading voices of opposition to the project, and we're thrilled to know our concerns, and the concerns of the thousands of Californians who opposed this senseless plan, were heard. Senator Feinstein has also played a large role in voicing citizen concerns by repeatedly expressing serious reservations about the environmental consequences of the project. Our national parks, our wilderness areas, the more than 500,000 annual visitors to Mojave National Preserve, and all of California's residents are better off for this decision.
