Feb. 11, 2019 – -The Assembly hosted a Joint Informational Hearing on “Safe and Affordable Drinking Water,” between the Budget Sub 3 Committee on Resources, the Water, Parks, and Wildlife Committee, and the Environmental Safety and Toxic Materials Committee. The purpose of the hearing was to engage all stakeholders on the topic and provide a forum for various approaches on how to create funding for safe and affordable drinking water. There were two panels who presented that included the Secretary of Natural Resources Agency, a Member of the State Water Resources Control Board, and various water entities. Although there were no policy decisions or votes taken, it was a positive first discussion, with a realization that this is a serious issue that needs ongoing conversations with all stakeholders.
