Professor Dunning Co-authors Op-ed for San Jose Mercury News

Professor Emeritus Harrison "Hap" Dunning, together with attorney Steve Machtinger, chairman of the board of The Bay Institute, have co-authored an op-ed published in the San Jose Mercury News. The article responds to statements by Senator Dianne Feinstein that "appeared to blame the conservation community for the state's failed water management practices."

"The truth is that The Bay Institute and its allies have worked constructively with Feinstein and others on California water policy issues for decades," Dunning and Machtinger write. "We urge Feinstein to preserve the legacy of her commitment to balancing agricultural water supply needs with protection of the environment," the essay concludes.
