Dear California Assemblymembers,
I am deeply concerned that my fellow Californians do not have access to safe and affordable drinking water. More than 300 communities and a million Californians lack access to this basic human right. Some families are paying as much as 10 percent of their monthly income for drinking water.
Senate Bill 623 would provide an ongoing source of funding to ensure all Californians have access to safe and affordable drinking water. The State Water Board has recommended this type of legislation for years. I strongly support SB 623, and recent polling shows that I am not alone — more than two-thirds of Californians approve of the approach in SB 623.
Please support SB 623! In the sixth largest economy in the world, we can and must ensure that all Californians have access to safe and affordable drinking water.
I understand that by signing this petition, I am agreeing to let my information be shared privately with Clean Water Action, Community Water Center, and Leadership Counsel for Justice and Accountability. They will keep this information to stay in touch with me about opportunities to advocate for safe water.
