Pursuant to Sections 7.(a)(1) and (a)(2) of the Endangered Species Act of 1973,as amended and supplemented (“ESA”), Reclamation is to utilize its authoritiesin furtherance of the purposes of the ESA, and insure that any action authorized,funded, or carried out by such agency is not likely to jeopardize the continuedexistence of any endangered species or threatened species or result in thedestruction or adverse modification of habitat of such species.
This is not being reported by ANY mainstream news organization. Donald Trump and California Governor Jerry Brown have reached an agreement regarding California's water resources and endangered species. To say that I am pleasantly surprised is a huge understatement. The document was signed on 12 December by the directors of the respective agencies, but it was the result of negotiations between Brown and Trump.
With all the negative news about Trump coming from the courts, it is easy to see why this passed under the radar, and was not reported. However, credit needs to be given where credit is due.
Thank you Governor Brown, and thank you, Mister President. This agreement was badly needed, and you both came through.
