Western states like Arizona, Nevada and California do suffer from droughts, necessitating at time severe water conservation measures. However, at present California is the only state that has chosen to deal with its water challenges mostly by imposing draconian and now permanent restrictions on water use. Meanwhile the state’s water infrastructure, such as reservoirs and canals, is either mostly neglected or on environmentalists’ chopping blocks.
The Just Vote No Blog recommends AB 1668 and SB 606: Far From Just Water Conservation Bills, published today in California Political News & Views.
The article questions whether California legislators are searching for solutions to the state’s water shortages, or are simply thirsty for control over their constituents. Why are legislators charging residents the highest taxes in the nation, and then letting the states’ infrastructure go to ruin?
California residents need to challenge AB 1668 and SB 606 before these bills become fully implemented during the next two years.
