PLF leads "Save Our Water" petition press conference
Author: Damien M. Schiff
Yesterday, Pacific Legal Foundation held a press conference at the Capitol in Sacramento to notify Governor Schwarzenegger and President Obama that PLF has collected over 12,000 signatures to its "Save Our Water" petition. The petition asks Governor Schwarzenegger to request the Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, to convene the Endangered Species Committee (commonly known as the "God Squad") to provide immediately relief to California's beleaguered San Joaquin Valley. PLF President Rob Rivett mc'ed the conference. Also speaking were Representative George Radanovich, California State Senator Jeff Denham, and Fresno businessman Piedad Ayala.
