LOS ANGELES (CBS) — CBS2 and KCAL9 asked Barbra Streisand for a comment regarding Gov. Jerry Brown’s decision to sell, among other state properties, the 24-acre multiple-home estate Ms. Streisand donated to the State of California and the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy in November, 1993:

“While I had hoped that the Ramirez Canyon property I donated to the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy would have been used for a state-of-the-art Environmental Conference and Study Center as was originally intended, I understand Governor Brown’s tough decision given the severe budget shortfalls that California is facing. I only hope that there is little disruption to the residents of Ramirez Canyon through this potential transition and that whatever entity does purchase the land and the homes on it will preserve its special habitat.” —Barbra Streisand, May 28, 2011
