Governor's remarks on environmental law spark mixed reactions in Marin

In a statement issued after Brown's speech, Marin Assemblyman Marc Levine did not mention the environmental act. He praised the speech as a whole, which had upbeat tone and touched in issues including education, climate change, jobs, the proposed San Joaquin Delta tunnels, high-speed rail and implementation of President Barack Obama's health care law.

"The governor's message was right on as California comes out of the Great Recession and again heads down the road to economic growth and prosperity," Levine, a Democrat, said in the statement. "California is boldly leading the way on innovation, business, the environment, renewable energy, and agriculture."
