California Assemblymember Alejo: No Design-Build, No Interlake Tunnel Funding
Monterey Herald
California Assemblymember Luis Alejo said he would not support state water bond funding for Monterey County's Interlake Tunnel project unless the county uses the design-build process outlined in state legislation he authored. Alejo, a Watsonville Democrat, told The Herald that he had "made it clear" to the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday he would not back allocating $12.5 million from the $7.54 billion bond on the November ballot if the county pursues a different course on the $25 million water storage project.

Other financial and pending legal challenges could still pose problems for the massive undertaking.
