Each year more than 1 million Californians are served water that does not meet safe drinking water standards. That's unacceptable. Let's call for change.
Water justice advocates have been working for years to secure a sustainable source of funding to address water affordability challenges and meet both capital costs and operation and maintenance needs in low-income communities impacted by nitrates, arsenic, pesticides, and other contaminants.
On Wednesday, March 20th, an Assembly Budget hearing will review Governor Newsom's Safe and Affordable Drinking Water Fund budget trailer proposal. The same proposal will be discussed at a Senate Budget hearing the next day, March 21st. Newsom’s proposal is a vital part of ending California’s crisis of unsafe water. Let your legislators know that you support this trailer bill proposal!
