Newsom must do more than sue Trump to protect San Francisco Bay

Guest commentary written by Dr. Jonathan Rosenfield, Senior Scientist at San Francisco Baykeeper:

Last month, Governor Newsom finally made good on his threat to sue the federal government over water management plans that would further imperil San Francisco Bay’s endangered fishes. The Governor and Attorney General Becerra deserve credit for joining conservation organizations to fight the Trump administration’s baseless Endangered Species Act “biological opinions”. The action was welcome news for San Francisco Bay and those who depend on it for sustenance because, through its first year, the Newsom administration’s water policies mirrored Trump’s.
