Brown Pushes Water Plan, Tunnels

Governor Jerry Brown laid out his vision for California’s water future at a conference of water agencies in Sacramento. He renewed his push for a controversial plan to build tunnels to divert water around the bay delta, a project that’s opposed by many environmental activists. Brown says the tunnels are needed to update a water infrastructure that’s outdated and inadequate for a growing population in an era of climate change. Christopher Martinez reports from Sacramento.
