Proposition 3 - Water Bond - OPPOSE
The text of this measure can be found on the Secretary of State’s website at

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.
