“As California enters the fourth year of the worst drought in our state’s history, it is important that the Legislature take the necessary steps to mitigate the negative effects it is having on our water supply, agricultural economy and environment. As a result, I am happy to support SB 75 and SB 76. These measures will appropriate over one billion dollars for drought-related programs and streamline projects that will improve access to safe drinking water, increase waste water treatment and water recycling. It is critical that as residents of San Bernardino County, we continue to do our best to minimize our water consumption and prioritize water conservation.”
