Will State Leaders Ever Get Real About Peripheral Canal Costs?

The Director of the California Department of Fish and Game touts the peripheral canal in today's Sac Bee without mentioning costs.

A few days ago, Natural Resources Agency Secretary Lester Snow sends a press release about the BDCP without mentioning costs.  The release says the new BDCP reports "will also identify issues that require further resolution, including additional scientific analysis to improve upon water operations for Delta fisheries, ecological metrics to measure progress, and ongoing development of an adaptive management plan."  No cost or financing on that list either. 

How can you be a state agency head in November 2010 and push a $13+ billion public works project without even mentioning cost?
