Brown dumps green regulations to push water tunnel plan

Jerry Brown is as phony as a three dollar bill. Given the choice between the environment and helping the unions and special interests, Brown chooses the corruption instead of the needs of Californians. “As the San Jose Mercury News reported, the $25 billion tunnel project contained $7.8 billion earmarked for preservation and restoration efforts...
