Our State is facing frequent and severe droughts, wildfires, the impacts of climate change, and a lack of support from the federal government to protect our water and natural areas. Now more than ever, California must take responsibility to protect our own unique natural resources.
Have a look at the investment priorities for $4 billion dollars that will be generated by Prop 68 should it be approved by the Voters on June 5, 2018
Prop 68 includes critical investments to our open spaces, coast, forests and other natural areas where families hike, camp, swim and play. The Clean Water and Safe Parks Act specifically addresses the impact of climate change, and a lack of access to parks, open space and clean water for underserved communities.
At a time when California faces more frequent and severe droughts, damaging wildfires, floods and the impacts of climate change, Prop 68 invests in safeguarding our natural resources and preparing for future challenges and natural disasters.
Prop 68 makes critical investments to protect our water quality and supplies. It takes a smart efficient approach—investing in capturing and recycling more water locally, cleaning up groundwater that was severely damaged in the last drought, and protecting the land, rivers, lakes and streams that are the sources of our drinking water.
