SENATOR FEINSTEIN ASKS SENATE LEADERSHIP FOR
FUNDING TO RESTORE BAY-DELTA ESTUARY

WASHINGTON, D.C. Senator Dianne Feinstein today requested that Senate
leaders Tom Daschle (D-SD) and Trent Lott (R-MS) support passage of legislation before
the end of this Congressional session which would authorize Congress to appropriate up
to S143 million per year for Fiscal Years 1998, 1999 and 2000 as the federal share for
restoring the Bay-Delta estuary in Northern California. Such funding would be
authorized only if California Proposition 204 passes this November.

Proposition 204 on the November ballot in California would authorize nearly S1
billion in bonds to implement long term solutions to the problems facing the estuary. The
ballot measure was developed as part of the CAL-FED process, a unique partnership
between state and federal governments that was created to bring the Bay-Delta estuary
into compliance with the Clean Water Act.

"Restoring the Bay-Delta estuary will provide California with the stable water
supply it needs to sustain our diverse economy," Senator Feinstein said. "Passage of
this important bill and Proposition 204 is critical to ensure that a long term,
consensus-based resolution is made in the allocation of water for urban, agricultural,
and environmental purposes a problem that has plagued California throughout this
century."

"I have urged both the Democrat and Republican leaders in the Senate to take
action on this legislation before the end of this Congressional session," Senator
Feinstein said. "I am hopeful that we can include this bill as part of a Continuing
Resolution."


The letters from Senator Feinstein to Daschle and Lott are attached.
