Proposition 3: Smart water plan or costly gift to farmers?

Highlights and Sticky Notes:The chief item that irks many critics is $750 million to repair the Friant-Kern Canal and the Madera Canal, which run across about 200 miles of the San Joaquin Valley from Chowchilla to Bakersfield. The canals are critical for irrigating farms and have been damaged by years of farmers over-pumping groundwater, which has led to the ground sinking.
Critics say the farmers should pick up the bill for the canals.Tags: no_tagby: ndcarter
