Suction dredge miners got a reprieve when Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed legislation that would have de-funded the court-ordered environmental plan needed before the practice could potentially resume.

Budget language passed by both state houses in May would have extended the current moratorium on the practice for five years, or until the Department of Fish and Game could come up with a plan to mitigate all the environmental impacts and a way to pay for program costs, estimated to be at least $2 million a year, a figure mining advocates dispute.

The 2010-11 Plumas County grand jury devoted the bulk of its 16-page report to investigative findings and recommendations for the Plumas County Board of Education and Plumas Unified School District. A copy of the report is available as a supplement in this week’s paper.

The 15-member civil panel reviews various aspects of county government to ensure accountability or in response to citizens’ complaints.

In addition to schools, this year’s jury selected the probation department, sheriff’s office and county projects funded with federal stimulus money.
