Levees necessary

Yes, levees are necessary, for flood protection for those who live in areas that flood.

But I have a problem with the letter-writer who says that SYRCL and Jason Rainey have their hands on a lot of money that funds these levees projects. I would like to see the documents that he has to back up this claim. Because that would mean that both houses of the California Legislature and also Gov. Schwarzenegger have freely given SYRCL and Jason Rainey that power. So, if that is the case, your problem is not with SYRCL or Jason Rainey, but with your elected state officials. That is the only way they could get control of what he says has happened.
