Dear Ocean Outfall Group (OOG), dedicated to ending the 301(h) waiver held by the Orange County Sanitation District (OCSD);

A spate of news articles and Letters To the Editor continue to fill the news pages. See the articles and letters printed this past week in various newspapers:

The above is your weekend diversion. You are hereby excused from emailing and faxing the Senate Appropriations Committee which I was going to ask that you do this weekend, because AB 1969 was supposed to be heard in the Senate Appropriations Committee on Tuesday. However, the bill has been postponed to later in July, probably because the Senate wants to see how the OCSD Board votes on July 17.

Enjoy the articles above.
