Proposition 3 - Water Bond - OPPOSE
The text of this measure can be found on the Secretary of State’s website at http://voterguide.sos.ca.gov.)

It is essential that California manage and develop water resources in ways that benefit the environment, and that the environmental focus emphasizes both conservation and use-appropriate high water quality standards. However, this bond is not the way to accomplish those goals. While the League of Women Voters of California supports the use of long-term debt (bond measures) to finance capital projects, this measure has a number of fatal flaws, including:

  • Shifting the cost for water from the end users to California taxpayers;
  • Reducing state money available for other critical state programs like education, affordable housing, and healthcare;
  • Failing to provide for adequate project oversight and financial accountability.

Vote NO on Prop 3.
