Dam Train Initiative regroups to focus on 2018

Proponents of the Dam–Train announced Friday that they are temporarily suspending signature gathering and are now focused on the 2018 elections.

Functionally, this allows them to gather signatures through the end of July and take advantage of lower costs to gather the more than 500,000 valid petition signatures needed.

CRIA and NCWA will continue to press the case that this ballot measure impacts water rights and delays the construction of Sites Reservoir regardless of when it is on the ballot.

Here is a good story in the Los Angeles Times with their comments and redirected strategy.
